Story by Craig from Auckland, New Zealand, submitted on 24/08/2016
The climb lulls you in with beautiful rolling meadows on the first third of the climb.

The middle section is particularly tough. There is a solid kilometre where the gradient doesn''t drop below 20%. The one respite is that this section has a heavy forest cover so you are saved from the heat. It''s not exaggerating to say that this section is reminiscent of the Muro di Sormano. Torturous.

The increase gradient also brings poor road conditions. The road condition deteriorates as the climb progresses.

The gradient eases in the top third but is without doubt harder than its climbbybike ranking gives it credit. I found it harder than some of the longer, better known dolomite climbs.

Story by ben edwards from stoke, United Kingdom, submitted on 14/11/2013
i climbed this in september 13 with 5 mates. We were on mountain bikes doing a munich to venice outing. This was the last big mountain pass of our trip.



Setting off from Mel it was a steady plod, though a section part way up was signposted as something like 10% but was probably nearer 25% and some of us walked. A bit of gravel track took us to onto more tarmac. No traffic what so ever. Wooded in sections and reminiscent of britain (almost). At the top opens up to an alpine meadow. The descent down towards Follina has stunning vistas all the way to the adriatic.



Id recommend this as an alternative to the san boldo pass (though the tunnels by all accounts are extraordinary).
