I had the good fortune to do this climb on a day off while on a trip to Zurich for business.
Overall, I think this climb is slightly easier than the profile suggests, due to the excellent road surface. There is also intermittent shade on some of the steeper parts.
There is a fair bit of traffic on the road, but it is very respectful of cyclists (at least by my standards).
It''s still quite a tough climb, though, with some short sections up to 15% and extended patches over 10.
There are some great views on the way up, though the summit view itself is not that spectacular.
There is a small drinking establishment about 500 metres past the summit on the other side, which is a pleasant stop after a hard climb on a hot summer''s day!

I ended up doing this pass when I missed my train to Altdorf and the foot of the Klausenpass. It''s obviously not nearly as high, but this is a solid challenge and features some lovely Alpine scenery. There are sustained sections above 10%, and a couple of sections about 2 km from the top which stretch to 15% or so. But there''s nothing Mortirolo-silly.
The road is, as the previous poster mentioned, narrow and fairly heavily trafficked. The view from the top is not great, but I can recommend the little bar/pub about 300 metres from the other side of the summit.
The descent is fast, but watch for the cattle grids.

The Ibergeregg pass from Schwyz starts right outside the backpackers Hirschen where I was staying. It''s signposted Ibergeregg and Rickenbach. After a huge hostel breakfast buffet I set off at a bright an early hour and immediately encountered a very steep gradient up to Rickenbach which did not agree very well with my breakfast. However I persevered and managed a steady pace all the way up the pass. It is a farming area and also a small ski area in winter.The road is narrow but generally with a good surface. I passed a mountain biker on the way who said that there were good trails there aswell. At the top I had a coffee in the restaurant there and then enjoyed the fast descent to Stocken and the Sihlsee.
