Story by Andy from Southport, United Kingdom, submitted on 09/10/2013
Climbed on beautiful sunny day 28/08/13 from Aosta. Steady gradient all the way up, fantastic scenary which gets better the higher you climb. Stunning summit with lake, St Bernard Statue and Hospice. Aosta best side to climb from as the Swiss side climbs through long tunnels.

Climb is not very steep, at least for most of the road, but still its quite demanding as it has almost 2000m gradient (from aosta to the very top). The views at the end (above 2000m) are really astounding, definitely one of the nicest from all the high-alpine passes.

Story by Mikael Jansson from , Canada, submitted on 06/11/2010
This is a beautiful ride after you get off the main road (just before the tunnell. I rode this fully loaded on a 700c touring bike with a 26x32 drivetrain. On May 30, 2010 the road was still closed to cars. The gate was disregarded by the few riders I saw. There was a snowbank to indicate the boarder to Switzerland that I had to hike over. I preferred the ride up to the ride down on the Swiss side. Large part of it was in a snow shed.

Story by Riccardo Mattia M from Ivrea, Italy, submitted on 14/05/2008
it was my first climb with my new Olmo Extrema MBK. Its 35 km of a new road, too much traffic until the tunnel, but not really climbing, its regular and with an amaizing landscape. Ill probably do it from Martigny (CH). You have to see the Hospice Museum. Bye…

è stata la mia prima salita, fatta da Aosta in circa 6 ore (non avevo ancora il contakm) sono 1890 mt di dislivello in 35 km è stata la mia prima salita con la mia nuova mbk Olmo Extrema. Sono 35 km di strada larga e comfortevole, anche se molto trafficata, fino al traforo. é regolare, e con un paesaggio magnifico. Da vedere il museo dellospizio

i climbed the Grand Saint Bernard in 2006 from the suisse side. I had a 13.5 kg vtc bike so the climb was not so easy for me. But when you arrive at the top you feel happy and proud of your performance. The panorama up there is great too ! you will really love this mountain!

Story by Jean-Michel from Doues, Italy, submitted on 28/04/2007
Since I live only a few kilometers from gran san bernardo, I climbed it many times. It may not be the thoughest climb out there but it is very long and there is no plain in the whole climb, you will have to push on the pedals all along. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful climbs for a nice and long day on the bike. You leave at 500 meters and when the climb is over, you feel in very high mountain. The pass itself is very beautiful. And the col is full of history, the first pass over the alps used since the bronze age, the same road taken by Napoleon and (according to the legend) by Hannibal and his elephants... You will love!
