One of the toughest climbs in Italy and Europe. A challenge against oneself on ramps that are nothing short of deadly. After the first 2 kilometres of warm-up at 10-12% after the town of Mione, the climb gives no respite, remaining constantly between 15-20% with the last kilometre all on concr... read more

One of the toughest climbs in Italy and Europe.
A challenge against oneself on ramps that are nothing short of deadly.
After the first 2 kilometres of warm-up at 10-12% after the town of Mione, the climb gives no respite, remaining constantly between 15-20% with the last kilometre all on concrete where peaks of 30% are almost reached.
I do not recommend doing it by road bike because going back down the same road is not ideal.
I recommend doing it by mountain bike or gravel bike to complete the tour of the malghe (shepherd's huts) that leads to Sauris, which is very beautiful and evocative!

Una delle salite più dure d'Italia e d'Europa.
Una sfida contro se stessi su rampe a dir poco micidiali.
Dopo i primi 2 km di riscaldamento al 10-12% dopo l'abitato di Mione la salita non da più tregua restando costantemente tra il 15-20% con l'ultimo km tutto in cemento dove si sfiorano punte del 30%.
Sconsiglio di farla in bici da strada perchè riscendere sulla stessa strada non è l'ideale.
Consiglio di farla in mtb o gravel per compiere il giro delle malghe che porta fino a Sauris molto bello e suggestivo!
