The toughest in Switzerland according to Climbfinder. Considering the length, the almost constant gradient of at least 9% and the last very steep (hecto)metres towards Capana Gesero, I am inclined to agree. A disadvantage of this climb on this side is the unpaved section in the final kilometres. I... read more

The toughest in Switzerland according to Climbfinder. Considering the length, the almost constant gradient of at least 9% and the last very steep (hecto)metres towards Capana Gesero, I am inclined to agree. A disadvantage of this climb on this side is the unpaved section in the final kilometres. In dry conditions, like mine at the end of June, it is reasonably doable, but it is not really fun. You experience a feeling of being alone in the world at the top!

De zwaarste van Zwitserland volgens Climbfinder. Gezien de lengte, het vrijwel constante stijgingspercentage van minstens 9% en de laatste erg steile (hecto)meters richting Capana Gesero ben ik geneigd akkoord te gaan. Een minpunt(je) van deze klim langs deze zijde is het onverharde gedeelte in de slotkilometers. In droge omstandigheden zoals bij mij eind juni redelijk goed te doen, maar echt leuk is het niet. Een gevoel van alleen op de wereld ervaar je op de top!
