It's one of those climbs where you want to stop every kilometre to take pictures. You just don't know where to look. Incredible views, good tarmac, mild percentages. I've biked 'm during the Sella Ronda Bike Day in June 2022; the Sella Ronda is then closed for motorized traffic. ... read more

It's one of those climbs where you want to stop every kilometre to take pictures. You just don't know where to look. Incredible views, good tarmac, mild percentages. I've biked 'm during the Sella Ronda Bike Day in June 2022; the Sella Ronda is then closed for motorized traffic. It is then very busy with cyclists, but I prefer that than hordes of motorcyclists and cars.

Zo'n klim waar je elke kilometer wel wil stoppen om foto's te maken. Je weet gewoon niet waar je kijken moet. Ongelooflijk mooi uitzicht, prima asfalt, milde percentages. Ik heb 'm gefietst tijdens de Sella Ronda Bike Day in juni 2022; de Sella Ronda wordt dan afgesloten voor gemotoriseerd verkeer. Het is dan wel heel druk met fietsers, maar dat heb ik liever dan hordes motorrijders en auto's.

This part of the Sella Ronda tour. All the good and bad things that are associated with the Sella Ronda are valid for this climb as well. Too crowded during Summer but in these surroundings, all is forgiven ;-) It is a short climb so don't forget to enjoy the surroundings because you are at the top before you know it.

Cycled up this short climb as the last one of the Sella Ronda which for me started in Canazei (counter clockwise Pordoï/Campolongo/Gardena/Sella).
Route starts at the three way junction in Plan de Gralba and winds to the top via a long series of gentle bends. Occasionally there is a slight downhill section but always between 5-10% with short peaks. After 4.5 km you have the impression to have reached the top, but it is the parking lot of the tourist Sassolungo cable car with the Dolomiti Mountain Resort Hotel next to it. The road rises another kilometer to one of the most beautiful pass heights of the Dolomites. On the very narrow passage, between one souvenir shop and one hotel, traffic is jammed because everyone wants to enjoy the magnificent view of the three peaks of the Sassolungo, the Sella Massif and the Marmolada glacier.
On busy summer days, the pass is therefore marred by parked cars on the side of the road!

Short climb in magnificent natural scenery!

Deze korte klim op gefietst als laatste van de Sella Ronda die voor mij begon in Canazei (tegenwijzerszin Pordoï/Campolongo/Gardena/Sella).
Route start op het driewegen kruispunt in Plan de Gralba en kronkelt naar de top via een lange reeks van flauwe bochten. Heel af en toe een licht dalend gedeelte maar toch steeds tussen 5-10% met korte uitschieters. Na 4,5 km heb je de indruk de top te bereiken maar het is het parkeerterrein van de toeristische Sassolungo kabelbaan met ernaast het Dolomiti Mountain Resort Hotel. De weg stijgt nog een kilometer verder tot voor mij één van de mooiste pashoogtes van de Dolomieten. Op de heel smalle doorgang, tussen één souvenirwinkeltje en één hotelletje,stropt het verkeer want iedereen wil genieten van het schitterend uitzicht op de drie pieken van de Sassolungo,het Sellamassief en de Marmolada gletsjer.
Op drukke zomerdagen word daardoor de pasovergang wat ontsierd door geparkeerde wagens langs de kant van de weg!

Korte klim in magistraal natuurdecor!
