This is the toughest climb I''ve ever done. This summer, I went there for the second time, having given up a few years ago, partly because of the steepness, partly because of the gravel section. Now, there is asphalt all the way, so my only opponents this time were the mountain and my not-too-good shape.

In fact, I came close to giving up once again already at 2k because it gets so steep there, and my heart rate touched 90%. I was saved by a short flat part, but right after, the slope increased to around 15%. And although the last couple of kilometers to the top have a moderate average grade, there are still sections of 10-15%. That''s what makes this climb so hard: the variation in steepness combined with it''s brutal average gradient. Strong winds - which I encountered this day - can make the ride even more difficult, especially when you leave the forest around the halfway point.

I did this climb 2011. I was only 13 years old then, and that was the toughest thing I ever done. I came up with 34-23, but it took me ages. 1:15:00 was my time up to the top, who is about 600 meters before you reach juvasshytta. then the climb was 13,2 km whit an averange 9,9%

Rode it yesterday, and it is HARD! Steep all the way, with only two short flat parts. I think this is tougher than Galibier (and Stelvio). The road surface is paved and smooth-ish, but on the way down you notice all the bumps. Check you brakes before you start.

I did the ride in 2010, and the road was fine, no gravel at all, even though the asphalt was a bit bumpy.
