Between Varese and Lugano I consider it the most gruelling climb. Exposed to the sun in June, the uphill section hardly allows you to sit down. A constant double-digit climb. A few drinking fountains on the way up, but not drinkable. So steep that stopping and starting again would be very difficult ... read more

Really tough climb of the kind that gives you no respite. Always well above 12% it must be taken with a lot of respect. The view of the hairpin bends from the bottom upwards is daunting, so it's best to look ahead and not overdo it, otherwise you're bound to get stuck. For people like me who are heavy, you have to handle it well and it takes good training. Bring water because the various fountains are not drinkable and there is nothing else. In summer, it is exposed to the sun.

Salita davvero dura di quelle che non ti danno respiro. Sempre abbondantemente sopra il 12% va presa con molto rispetto. La visione dei tornanti dal basso verso l’alto è scoraggiante quindi meglio guardare avanti e non strafare altrimenti ci si pianta di sicuro. Per chi come me è pesante bisogna gestire bene e ci vuole buon allenamento. Portatevi l’acqua perché le varie fontanelle non sono potabili e non c’è nulla di altro. In estate é esposta al sole.

Between Varese and Lugano I consider it the most gruelling climb. Exposed to the sun in June, the uphill section hardly allows you to sit down. A constant double-digit climb. A few drinking fountains on the way up, but not drinkable. So steep that stopping and starting again would be very difficult anyway. Highly recommended, easily comparable to the Mortirolo. Once you have reached the top, the gentle climb up to M miglieglia and then down towards Magliaso is recommended. A must in the area

Tra Varese e Lugano la reputo la salita più estenuante. Esposta a giugno al sole, per il tratto in salita, non permette di sedersi quasi mai. Una costante salita in doppia cifra. Qualche fontanella durante la salita ma non potabile. Talmente ripida che comunque fermarsi e ripartire sarebbe molto difficile. Iper consigliata, paragonabile tranquillamente al Mortirolo. Una volta raggiunta la cima, consigliata la leggera Salita ancora per miglieglia per poi scendere verso Magliaso. Un must in zona

A very pretty climb, in just a few minutes you get away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and find yourself in a very relaxing place with many quaint little villages.

Salita molto carina, in pochi minuti ti allontani dal caos del traffico e ti trovi in un luogo molto rilassante con molti piccoli paesini caratteristici.

The Alpe de Huez from Lugano. Beautiful climb with many serpentines. Unfortunately there was a lot of traffic when I was there, otherwise highly recommended.

Die Alpe de Huez von Lugano. Schöner Anstieg mit vielen Serpentinen. Leider war recht viel Verkehr als ich dort war sonst sehr zu empfehlen.
