Steady climb. The profile on this site does not tell the whole story. In total 23 km of climbing and over the whole climb parts with percentages in double figures. The last 7 km are the most beautiful and actually the best to do because they are more regular. Nice tarmac.... read more

Best long climb in the Valsugana area, more beautiful and longer than e.g. Paranotta or Monte Bondone. The start is fine to do, recover in the middle between the cows, the last kilometres the toughest and the summit really feels like a summit too.

Beste lange klim in de omgeving Valsugana, mooier en langer dan bv Paranotta of Monte Bondone. Het begin is prima te doen, middenin bijkomen tussen de koeien, de laatste kilometers het zwaarst en de top voelt ook echt als een top.

What was perhaps the most difficult thing for me was the length, 23 km is a long way if you have already done 120 km before. Refilling water at the last available fountain, which is the only one I've seen, about 10 km from the start. On summer weekends, watch out for motorcyclists, a lot of them pass you at high speed, especially on the last few km where the road is quite narrow. The descent towards Molina, in the first 10 km is a free fall, be careful to use the brakes only at the end of the curve and not to keep them tight all the time. Even in summer, take cover for the descent, it is a forest area that can be very very cold. A certain amount of physical preparation is required to get to the top, for the vast majority of human beings it will take at least 2 hours of suffering and mental tenacity, reserve your strength for the last few kilometres, luckily (or not) the pass is only visible when there are only a few metres to go.

Lo que para mi ha sido tal vez lo mas difícil, es la longitud, 23 km son muchos si antes has hecho ya unos 120 km. Reponer agua en la última fuente disponible, que es la única que he visto, a unos 10 km desde la salida. En los fines de semana de verano, atento a los motociclistas, una buena parte te pasan muy cerca a gran velocidad, sobretodo en los últimos km en donde el camino es bastante estrecho. El descenso hacia Molina, en los primeros 10 km es una caída libre, atentos a usar los frenos solo al final de la curva y no tenerlos apretados todo el tiempo. Aún en verano, cubrirse para la bajada, es una zona de bosque que puede ser muy muy frio. Se requiere una cierta preparación física para llegar arriba, para la inmensa mayoría de los seres humanos serán requeridas por lo menos 2 horas de sufrimiento y tenacidad mental, reservar fuerzas para los últimos kms, por suerte (o no) el puerto se ve solo cuando faltan pocos metros.

Beautiful climb that goes up and up... let's say that up to -6km you warm up very well for the final part which is undoubtedly the hardest even if the hairpin bends help. If you do it in the summer (like me 26/6) do it in the morning ... it is very exposed to the sun and the afternoon or the hottest hours could add a lot of suffering. The wind at the top is guaranteed but you don't reach a plateau, i.e. there is a peak and you descend immediately. As soon as you descend (200-300 metres) there is a nice hut where you can refresh yourself

Bella salita che va in crescendo... diciamo che fino ai -6km ci si scalda molto bene per la parte finale che è indubbiamente la più dura anche se aiutano i tornanti. Se la fate in estate (come me 26/6) fatela al mattino ... è molto esposta al sole e il pomeriggio o le ore più calde potrebbero aggiungere molta sofferenza. Il vento in cima è garantito ma non si raggiunge un piano ovvero c'è un picco e si scende subito. Appena scesi (200-300 metri) c'è un bel rifugio dove rifocillarsi

Good climb. Challenging for me because it was tackled the day after the Menador climb. Long but with some easy stretches which, however, are paid for by some ramps with gradients of more than 15% for a few hundred metres. Beautiful views and the last section is also exciting and challenging due to the altitude. Highly recommended

Bella salita. Per me impegnativa perché affrontata il giorno dopo la scalata al Menador. Lunga ma con alcuni tratti facili che però si pagano con alcune rampe con pendenza superiore al 15% per alcune centinaia di metri. Panorami bellissimi e l'ultimo tratto emozionante e impegnativo anche per l'altitudine. Consigliatissima

Stevige klim. Het profiel op deze site vertelt niet het hele verhaal. In totaal 23 km klimmen en over de hele klim stukken met percentages dik in de dubbele cijfers. De laatste 7 km zijn het mooist en eigenlijk ook het beste te doen omdat ze regelmatiger zijn. Mooi asfalt.

Very nice climb with changing views of forest, mountains and alpine meadows. Last few kilometres are indeed tough, but if you have divided your strength well, it is easy to do. Also as a descent this side is worthwhile. Many good running pieces on nice tarmac and a few nice viewpoints to take a break.

Erg mooie klim met wisselende uitzichten op bos, bergen en alpenweides. Laatste paar kilometer zijn inderdaad pittig, maar als je je krachten goed hebt verdeeld is het goed te doen. Ook als afdaling is deze kant zeker de moeite waard. Veel goed lopende stukken op mooi asfalt en een paar mooie uitzichtpunten om even te pauzeren.

Wonderful climb. Absolutely must do when in the area.
Little traffic on the way and the tarmac was good.

Prachtige klim. Moet je absoluut doen wanneer je in de omgeving bent.
Weinig verkeer onderweg en het asfalt lag er goed bij.

Last Saturday I cycled together with Loulou Patrick Strong. What a beautiful climb this is. A long climb with very steep parts, so divide your forces well.
I had trained a lot in recent years so I came up fairly easily and overtook people who passed me earlier on the climb. Proof of a good distribution of forces. Last kilometers are narrow and steep and super beautiful. So enjoy it.
The next day on the Passo Manghen hiked, just as'a fantastic experience. Top climb, highly recommended!

Afgelopen zaterdag gefietst samen met Loulou Patrick Sterk. Wat een prachtige klim is dit zeg. Wel een lange klim met zeer steile gedeeltes, dus verdeel je krachten goed.
Had zelf veel getraind de afgelopen jaren waardoor ik vrij makkelijk boven kwam en mensen inhaalde die mij eerder op de klim inhaalden. Bewijs van goed je krachten verdelen. Laatste kilometers zijn smal en steil en super mooi. Geniet er dus vooral van.
De volgende dag ook op de Passo Manghen gewandeld, net zo'n fantastische ervaring. Topklim, echte aanrader!

An unknown giant! In the Giro this climb is not often used, but this is one of the best. Long, with a not too difficult start. But the devil is in the tail. And not even the percentages are painful, but especially the changeability. Flat pieces are alternated with steep peaks. You never really get into a rhythm. And then the altitude comes into play. I used the descent to see something of the beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended, but prepare well in advance for what is to come!

Een onbekende reus! In de Giro wordt deze klim niet vaak aangedaan, maar dit is er één uit het boekje. Lang, met een niet al te moeilijk begin. Maar het venijn zit in de staart. En dan zijn niet eens de percentages zelf pijnlijk, maar vooral de wisselvalligheid. Vlakke stukken worden afgewisseld door steile pieken. Echt in een ritme kom je nooit. En dan gaat ook de hoogte meespelen. De afdaling heb ik gebruikt om ok iets van de prachtige omgeving te zien. Een aanrader, maar stel je van tevoren goed in op wat komen gaat!

From Bolzano I had to make a long (flat) run to be able to climb the Manghenpass from the south side. I can be brief about it, it is me d'r though. Like everything in the Dolomites it is irregular and at times quite steep. The average does not tell the whole story, with peaks of 14-15%.

1.5h later I couldn't reach the top because I was stopped by 2 police officers. All the cool racecars that I slowly approached could have told this already, but there was a rally on the other side of the mountain. They kindly asked me to find an alternative route, which meant making a detour of about 120km(!!!). In the end we arrived back home in the dark with 230km on the counter, but we still couldn't cross off the Manghenpass.

Vanuit Bolzano al een flinke (vlakke) aanloop moeten maken om de Manghenpass vanaf de zuidkant te kunnen beklimmen. Ik kan er kort over zijn, het is me d'r wel eentje hoor. Zoals alles in de Dolomieten is deze onregelmatig en bij tijden flink steil. Het gemiddelde verteld niet het hele verhaal, met uitschieters naar 14-15%.

1.5u ploeteren later jammer genoeg de top niet kunnen bereiken omdat ik werd tegengehouden door 2 politieagenten. Alle gave racewagens die ik langzaamrijdend tegemoet gekomen was hadden dit al kunnen verklappen, maar er was dus een rally aan de andere kant van de berg. Er werd vriendelijk verzocht een alternatieve route te zoeken, oftewel zo'n 120km(!!!) omrijden. Uiteindelijk in het donker met 230km op de teller via dezelfde weg weer thuisgekomen, maar de Manghenpas nog niet af kunnen strepen.
