What a drama...in terms of road surface! Especially after the barrier..drainage holes..gravel..cracks and holes. Especially in the descent it's a massacre for your material because it's 10%+. Furthermore, the views are fantastic and you only encounter some hikers and workmen. This is n... read more

The surface is bad, but it is possible to ride a road bike. Watch out for drainage grooves and fairly large holes when going downhill.

What a drama...in terms of road surface! Especially after the barrier..drainage holes..gravel..cracks and holes. Especially in the descent it's a massacre for your material because it's 10%+. Furthermore, the views are fantastic and you only encounter some hikers and workmen. This is not a climb you do for fun... it is a beast! I ride 34x34 and found it very hard....

Wat een drama… qua wegdek! Vooral na de slagboom.. afvoergaten..gravel..scheuren en gaten. Zeker in de afdaling is het een afslachting voor je materiaal zeker omdat het 10%+ is.. verder zijn de uitzichten fantastisch en kom je alleen wat wandelaars en werklui tegen.. Deze klim doe je niet voor je plezier even.. het is een beest! Ik rij 34x34 en vond het zeer zwaar..

I have done the climb on foot, so I can't tell you anything about the severity and the condition of the road surface for cyclists. In general, the latter seems to be fine.
It is an incredibly beautiful climb in terms of scenery and views, especially after the valley station of the Glacier Express. Very little traffic (actually none, except 'other' cyclists). Dress well though, because it can be chilly on top of the mountain.

Ik heb de beklimming rennend gedaan, dus kan niets aangeven over zwaarte en staat van het wegdek voor fietsers. Over het algemeen lijkt dat laatste wel prima in orde.
Het is een ongelooflijk mooie klim qua natuurschoon en uitzichten, zeker na het dalstation van de Gletsjer-express. Heel weinig verkeer (eigenlijk geen, behalve 'andere' fietsers). Goed aankleden wel, want het kan fris zijn bovenop de berg.
