Story by Andee from Birmingham, United Kingdom, submitted on 07/10/2012
I agree with the above comment.It''s tough and I didn''t have the greatest time on it.Some of the narrow passes with heavy tree cover sap your strength more.The big sweeping roads of Susten etc with stunning views keep you entertained where as this just felt long and arduous.And yes I''d still go do it again in an instant!

Story by Chris Patient from Zermatt, Switzerland, submitted on 12/10/2011
I did the Acherli Pass from Kerns and found it much harder than the climbybike rating and it seemed steeper than 9%. Admitedly I was tired from already having cycled the Glaubenberg pass and it was late and I was pushing a 39/25 which is not enough for a pass such as the Acherli pass. It is a very narrow road with a sustained steep gradient which goes on and on. On the Kerns side you are in the trees for most of the way but you do get some great views of the Stanserhorn and Sarnersee.There is no sign at the top but suddenly the road descends very steeply to the Acherli hamlet and then continues dramatically down all the way to Dallenwil. I was just thankfull I did not have to come up from that side.
