I spent 4 days cycling in the Dolomites in the August/September of 2017. Of the 435 kilometers and over 13,100 vertical meters I rode there, this climb was by far the hardest. The straight part of the climb seems to go on forever, and then the hairpins with 18% gradient! I would certainly give it my personal climb rating of 5 mountains.

Rode this climb after coming over the Passo Giau from Cortina d''Ampezzo. Lots of difficulty and suffering. Threatening to rain/raining all day, which was fortunate because this climb is exposed all the way up the valley approach. Steady lower climbing leads to a long, straight section before the last switchbacks. This straight section increases in severity, then further increases with the switchbacks up to about 16% at times. Looking down from the switchbacks we could view another rider weaving back and forth across the road with suffering. Once to the Passo we rode back down to Alleghe. The decent on this climb is a ripper, particularly the long straight section!

I just got back from the Dolomites.I''m an average *probably belowl;) hobby rider. i was in France and I did most of the other famous Dolomites climbs...but that "straight" at "Malga Ciapala"...at 39x28 almost got me for good!It looks like it''s flat, you see teh end of the straight , but it is so long that you seem not to be movin at all.For me harder than Tre Cime and even harder (for me at least, and mentally for sure)than Mortirolo!It is THAT bad!!! Really!

The most difficult climb I have done in my life (until now 07-03-2014). The last 6 km are really tough.

It''s just terrible. At the beginning it''s freindly enough but then after the waterfall OUCH. I have been a pro and I''ve done 5 Giro''s (never Fedaia though) so I''d consider myself as experienced but this one alsmost killed me. The 3-4 km long straight 15% part is devastating. Then when the switchbacks begin you think you are home safe, but no way....It was the 3nd climb of my ride yesterday and it killed me for the rest of the day.

I call it Passo Fed..ahia, because I''ve been hurt many times doing this climb, I mean I suffered for many reasons. Main pain is coming from the flat zone, the first part from Caprile, then in a moment you reach the "highway of death" more than 3 km without any tornante till the mirage of "Capanna Bill". From there you must take a deep breathe to make the 2nd part, more interesting and panoramic. Don''t ride on Fedaia during the week end, it''s always busy !

I rode this twice in 2008 and can verify it didn''t get easier the second time. Not too bad to start with some relatively flat sections. After you pass through a scenic waterfall area, it gets seriously steep and actually gets worse closer to the top. Very long and the 9-15% for the last 5 or 6K make it brutal. A true mental/physical test.

One of the toughest i ever rode ! Compact cranck : 34x25 was maybe too heavy although I made it. 34x27 would have been better I think. Two day to go to the maratona dles dolomites.... So tomorrow an easy round sella ronde..... The suroundings of the fedaia are in one word : impressive !

Ante Smokrovic

If I have to describe it with one word it would be OUCH. This one really hurts if you have standard 53-39 cranks. I dont know what is harder, long false flat sections after gallery or last few km switch backs. One thing is for sure, you are glad when it is over. First time I climbed it it was cloudy with pleasant temperature and second time I had real drama on relentlessly hot day with some 36°C. Once you get there youll enjoy because the summit with glacier and lake is very nice.

I climbed the passo fedaia from the caprile side several years ago. I am an experienced road biker and raced at the national level. I used a 39x27 and almost ripped my thighs off. the last3-4 km are brutal. not as bad as the mortirolo but painful.I recommend at least a 34x27(compact) or even better a 30x27(triple). always remember-unlike the alps, even the pros are not too proud to use very low gears in the dolomites.
