I do not know why, but i really like this climb. Here again i had an occasion to climb it once again after two years. With 7,5 kg pina dogma it took ar. 55 minutes. So 1 minute longer than two years ago with havier bike but i had to do it carefully because at that thay i had targeted to Monte Zoncolan and then back Monte Croce di Carnico. Anyway i really like Plockenpass and will be coming back some times. Michal

I climbed it today on 13th August 2012 at around 9 am. Im from flatlands so any climb is a chalange for me :-) Ive used Spec Secteur 1o5 which is 10,5 kg compact plus me 86kg. I need 54 minutes to go to Plocken Pass. Quite chalange but it is ok to have 2 corrnettos at peak with Cola. Final part of climb in last tunel was raelly chalanging/ I recommend to climb this way. Not to big rush of cars and few nice views. Really nice time. Michal
