Story by Jack from Andover, United Kingdom, submitted on 22/07/2010
Climbed this in the morning around 10am on route to Stage #10 of the 2010 TdF. They told me it was a short cut, they were right, a short cut to HELL! Very difficult climb, too steep for me to spin my way up, so had to grind it out. If you like the steep stuff, this is your CLIMB!
My personal climb rating:

The rating of this climb is not correct as you can see. Its just 7km instead of 12.4. Its a very tough climb with percentages above 12% all the time after km2. Its comparable with climbs like the Mortirollo(but then shorter). Its a nice challenge.
