I've had plans regarding this pass since 2016, when I did Passo di Valles nearby. This summer I started from Falcade and did it, as I usually tend to do, without stops. With my weight, overall shape and gears it's one breath per one step on the pedal, really. Well, I'm happy it went all right, but I'd prefer to have at least some more power, so as not to ride on just because I may be too exhausted to be able to touch the ground safely :)

A long climb that gets steeper the higher you climb until a pleasant gentler section at the top,Good strudel and coffee at top.Few too many motorbikes but quieter than some of the other local climbs.

Initial tunnel choking and noisy and alternative not obvious.Good combination with the Sella to the north.

I did this side 2 hours after to do the Fedaia. Was a hot day, there are several water fountains, but I did''nt put foot on the street. The climb it''s hard and long than you beleave for the "gradient", because have some little descend. After the cross road to Rolle pass, was very very hard.

We climbed the Passo di San Pellegrino the day after the 2006 Giro dItalia used it as the final climb to the finish on Stage 19. Shortly after leaving the village of Cencenighe you arrive at a long tunnel. While there is no sign prohibiting cyclists from using the tunnel, it is not well lit, or pleasant. Cyclists are better off using the by-pass side road, located adjacent to the entrance on the left. After negotiating the tunnel you climb 8.5 kilometres to the village of Falcade. The gradient in this section varies between 5% and 8.4%. The real climb starts as you leave Falcade and climb the 2.5 kilometres to Falcade Alto, where the gradients average about 12%. Leaving Falcade Alto you encounter a series of switch backs that become progressively steeper, until they are very steep. The final switch backs are the steepest and merely warm your legs for the true challenge; a section where the gradient is 18%. As you round the corner of the last switch back the road straightens out, rises up and you pass a sign that announces the 18% gradient. The sight of what looks like a vertical rise is in fact quite daunting, and even strong climbers will be reaching for their largest rear cog. The straight section is about 400 metres long and you just have to settle in and grind it out. The gradient then drops dramatically and the final 5 to 6 kilometres seems like a cruise, although it isnt. The Passo Di San Pellegrino is 18.5 kilometres, in which you climb 1155 metres, giving an average gradient of 6.2%. Those figures belie the real challenge of the 18% section. The scenery is great and, best of all, there is a really good bike shop at the bottom.
