Not as famous as mazzo,but it is harder,the locals told me it was crazy hard.it starts off much steeper than mazzo,then about half way there is a flat section ,which you pay for! There are some beautiful views and then it ramps up.problem is road is serrated concrete with steel drainage channels that can fit a foot.its difficult to keep momentum as it is really steep,my garmin said 26%.then you rejoin the road near top and it seems easy! I saw no-one on this road! It starts next to the tovo cemetery! Worth doing, as i did mazzo 5 times and i wanted to try another for 6. It is beautiful but hard. The hardness near the main t junction channeled zoncolan. The mazzo climb is hard because it is persistently steep,tovo climb is hard,then easy then crazy steep,choose your poison!

Heb deze beklommen in 2018.
Ontieglijk zware klim! 12 km aan gemiddeld 11%. Met een eigen "La Redoute" enkele kilometers voor de top, met stukken van meer dan 20%. Van bij het begin gaat het al steil omhoog en dat zal de eerste 8 km niet veranderen. Het wegdek is smal, maar redelijk berijdbaar. Voordeel is wel dat je hier alleen bent. Je komt nauwelijks iemand tegen en een auto heb ik niet gezien op de hele beklimming. De stijgingspercentages per kilometer verdoezelen soms wel het profiel. In een stuk van 12%, gaat het vaak met 16% naar boven om dan af te vlakken tot 6%. Dit is een klim waar 6% aanvoelt als "plat" waar je even de benen kan laten rusten.
Het zwaarste stuk komt na de afdaling. Je hebt al een uur lang, de longen uit je lijf getrapt en dan tikken de stijgingspercentages de 20% aan en er zelfs over. Bovendien is het wegdek daar ook veel slechter. Destijds waren ze aan het wegdek aan het werken. Misschien is dat intussen van glad asfalt voorzien ??
Op dat stuk ging het zo steil dat ik bij het trekken aan mijn stuur om kracht te zetten (om überhaupt vooruit te komen), mijn voorwiel van de grond trok en tegen de vlakte ging. Terug op je fiets klimmen en vertrekken lukt je niet met zo'n stijging, dus toch even moeten stappen tot het weer afvlakte tot onder de 15% om weer op de fiets te springen.
Op de top is overigens niks te beleven. Maar je bent zo uitgeput, dat dat het laatste van je zorgen is.
Veruit de moeilijkste klim die ik ooit gedaan heb. Hij heet niet voor niet de Mortirolo.
