I did it again on 21/06/2024. It had been two years since I had done it. It is generally accessed via Gus di Mel.

I did it again on 21/06/2024. It had been two years since I had done it. It is generally accessed via Gus di Mel. Already from the first few kilometres there are stretches between 10 and 12%, then towards Carve it tends to level out and go downhill to Valmaor.
But from there up to Praderadego it is about 4.5 km. really hard, without respite and breathless, a succession of stretches at 14-15-16-18-19% max. on a narrow and ruined road (even if there is little traffic, watch out for cars and motorbikes, especially at the steepest points). The last 2 km just a few short stretches at 8-9% to rest your leg, then a final climb at 10-11% to the Praderadego signpost.
I recommend a 34 x 32 ratio, unless you are super-trained.
Descent to Cison di Valmareno on a narrow road, very rough, pebbles, small tree branches. Beware of the passages with changing lights in the forest sections, the risk is that you will not see the potholes and asphalt patches in time.
The descent towards the Belluno area, to Gus di Mel is even worse, at the limits for a racing bike. If you can avoid it, if you can't, be careful not to "burn your brakes" and potholes for the wheels...
Lastly, there has always been a debate among us in the area as to whether it is harder on the Belluno or Treviso side. On the Cison di Valmareno side, the climb is more constant with gradients between 9-10-14% max, you can pick up the pedalling rhythm better and take advantage of the hairpin bends. For me, it is the "easiest". On the Gus side of Mel it can fool you as far as Carve and Valmaor, but from there on the Praderadego presents the "bill" in 4.5km. really tough, especially the initial 2.5km. I have seen cyclists practically fall over on the climb.

L'ho rifatta il 21/06/2024. Era da 2 anni che non la facevo. Generalmente si accede per Gus di Mel. Già dai primi km. si presenta con tratti tra il 10 e 12%, poi verso Carve tende a spianare e andare in discesa sino a Valmaor.
Ma da lì sino al Praderadego sono circa 4,5 km. veramente duri, senza tregua e respiro, un seguirsi di tratti al 14-15-16-18-19% max. su strada stretta e rovinata (anche se poco trafficata attenzione alle auto e moto, specialmente nei punti più pendenti). Gli ultimi 2km solo qualche breve tratto al 8-9% per riposare la gamba, poi ancora uno strappo finale al 10-11% sino al cartello Praderadego.
Consiglio un rapporto 34 x 32, a meno che non siete dei super allenati.
Discesa a Cison di Valmareno su strada stretta, molto rovinata, sassolini, piccoli rami di albero. Attenti ai passaggi con cambio di luce nei tratti di bosco, il rischio è di non vedere in tempo buche e i rattoppi di asfalto.
La discesa verso il bellunese, a Gus di Mel è ancora peggio, ai limiti per una bici da corsa. Se possibile evitatela, se non potete, attenti a non "bruciare i freni" e alle buche per le ruote...
Da ultimo, tra di noi della zona si è sempre discusso se sia più dura dal lato bellunese o trevigiano. Dal lato di Cison di Valmareno la salita è più costante con pendenze tra il 9-10-14% max., si riesce a prendere meglio il ritmo di pedalata e sfruttare i tornanti. Per me è la più "facile". Dal lato di Gus di Mel può ingannare sino Carve e Valmaor, ma da lì in poi il Praderadego presenta il "conto" in 4,5km. veramente duri, specialmente nei 2,5km. iniziali. Ho visto ciclisti cadere praticamente fermi in salita.

I didn't like this climb very much. Attracted here by the very interesting gradients, I found a rough asphalt surface that was badly maintained (which caused me to fall off my bike on a particularly steep hairpin bend) combined with a panorama that was nothing special. These elements make the climb absolutely avoidable for me, at least on a road bike. If, on the other hand, you are on a mtb or gravel bike, you can pass through here to go towards Malga Canidi and then (mtb only) possibly connect to the Madean road.

However, I would like to point out that my experience dates back a few years.

Non mi è piaciuta un granché questa salita. Attirato qui dalle pendenze molto interessanti, ho trovato un asfalto ruvido tenuto malaccio (ciò che mi ha fatto cadere dalla bici su un tornante particolarmente ripido) combinato con un panorama che non ha nulla di speciale. Questi elementi rendono la salita per me assolutamente evitabile, per lo meno con la bici da corsa. Se invece siete in mtb o gravel potete passare di qui per andare verso malga Canidi e poi (solo mtb) eventualmente connettervi alla strada del Madean. Una cosa buona è il traffico, inesistente.

Segnalo comunque che questa mia esperienza risale a qualche anno fa.

Challenging climb, especially in the first part at the exit of the town for a few hundred metres and then in the central part with the hairpin bends.
Very little traffic, road surface in fair condition.
Being almost entirely sheltered by trees, it is excellent as a summer climb.
BE CAREFUL GOING DOWNHILL!

Salita impegnativa soprattutto nella prima parte all’uscita dell’abitato per qualche centinaio di metri e poi nella parte centrale con i tornanti.
Traffico scarsissimo,manto stradale in condizioni discrete.
Essendo quasi interamente riparata dagli alberi,é ottima come salita estiva.
ATTENZIONE IN DISCESA!

Beautiful and hard climb through the wood and rock. Sometimes the road is not so good but always for road bike. The road is pretty narrow so it need to pay attention if cars comes (but is not a street for car so it can be possibile find no one). The middle part is exhausting.
If you like savage climb and hidden road, this is one to pay attention.
