After the Albula & Julier tour, we started this climb from Tiefencastel. With about 100 km in the legs, this was not the best idea. The road to first Mon and then Stierva is beautiful, but already gives a taste of what is to come. From Stierva, you dive into the alpine meadows and solitude, and ... read more

After the Albula & Julier tour, we started this climb from Tiefencastel. With about 100 km in the legs, this was not the best idea. The road to first Mon and then Stierva is beautiful, but already gives a taste of what is to come. From Stierva, you dive into the alpine meadows and solitude, and six to seven gruelling kilometres follow. Struggling is the least of it at this stage. The views in the direction of the summit get better and better and once at the top, the reward follows. A col sign and a magnificent view.

Na het rondje Albula & Julier deze klim nog aangevat vanuit Tiefencastel. Met ongeveer 100km al in de benen was dit niet meteen het beste idee. De weg naar eerst Mon en daarna Stierva is prachtig, maar geeft wel al een voorproefje van wat je te wachten staat. Vanaf Stierva duik je de alpenweides en eenzaamheid in en volgen er zes à zeven loodzware kilometers. Afzien was zacht uitgedrukt in deze fase. De uitzichten richting de top worden alsmaar beter en eens boven volgt de beloning. Zowaar een colbordje en een magnifiek uitzicht.
