For me, this climb boiled down to 1hr in zone 3 (tempo), which made it a really good training ride. Once you are at the top, the view is spectacular: one of the best views you are going to get in the Dolomites. ... read more

Hoe ziet de ideale klim eruit (voor mij dan)? Zo dus! Steil, maar ook heel regelmatig en rond de 10 km. Als je in het juiste klimritme zit, waarvan je weet dat je dit een klein uur kan volhouden, dan kan je prima door. Zo niet, dan is dit wel echt een onding. Verlichting is er niet en tempowisselingen moet je goed plannen. Als je te snel iets wilt forceren, krijg je dit de laatste kilometers echt terug. Ook belangrijk, de beklimming biedt alles wat een berglandschap kan bieden: mooie haarspeldbochten, koel bos met wilde rivier, ruig landschap boven de boomgrens en prachtige uitzichten op de top. En oh ja, een snelle en fijne afzink maar Cortina!

Deze prachtige continu steile klim op gefietst en aan de lijve ondervonden dat er geen enkel recuperatiemoment is.
De bloedrode grafiek van Climbfinder en het gemiddelde percentage zeggen genoeg.
Vanuit Selva klimt de brede weg de hele tijd via 28 optellende haarspeldbochten en 3 tunnel galerijen het nauw dal van de Codalunga bergrivier, die we enkele keren over fietsen,naar omhoog. Als je de Rifugio Fedare (kabelbaan/berghut) die hoog boven jou vrij snel in het gezichtsveld komt als de top aanziet kom je bedrogen uit. Je kan je er wel bevoorraden maar men is nog maar in bocht 24 op de 2000 meter hoogtegrens.
De top van de pas is een ontroerend mooi 360° panorama van bergketens met één café/restaurant en een kleine kapel.
Voor mij één van de mooiste pashoogtes die er zijn. Onderweg veel geschilderde aanmoedigingen op het wegdek want deze zijde is regelmatig het strijdtoneel in de Giro.

Topper op alle gebied,één van de prachtigste Dolomieten cols, verplichte klim voor elke fietser!
