What an incredibly tough climb! From Zignago, the climb is over 15% for 6km on average, with 4km of over 16% in between. The 17-19 sections are long and can be survived with a 10m break in the hairpins. Halfway there is a 1,3km stretch without any turns which seems endless. Once you have survive... read more

Extremely steep, hardly doable and not much to do with cycling anymore. The last 2 km reduce the gradient somewhat, but the first 6 km are really killing! Feeling satisfied when you reach the top, but descend via the other side!

Ontzettend steil, eigenlijk nauwelijks te doen en heeft niet veel meer met fietsen te maken. De laatste 2 km drukken het stijgingspercentage nog enigszins, maar de eerste 6km zijn echt killing! Wel voldaan gevoel als je boven bent, maar daal via de andere kant af!

Super hard climb. Regularly all zigzagging on the track to get to the top. Definitely fun if you're in the area and want to do a crazy ride!

Super zware klim. Regelmatig al zigzaggend over de baan gefietst om nog naar boven te geraken. Zeker tof als je de buurt bent en een zot ritje wil doen!

What an incredibly tough climb! From Zignago, the climb is over 15% for 6km on average, with 4km of over 16% in between. The 17-19 sections are long and can be survived with a 10m break in the hairpins. Halfway there is a 1,3km stretch without any turns which seems endless. Once you have survived this stretch without getting off the bike, you should be able to reach the top, although it is still a long way. The next 2 km are very hard, but again contain several hairpin turns. Then you get a few hundred meters to recharge for the last steep kilometer.

The quality of the road surface is moderate, but doable on a road bike. The holes are easy to cycle around, but the roughness of the road makes the climb extra tough. The hairpins are numbered from 20 to 1. For the views you do not have to do it. Only in the first kilometers and just before the top there is a view of the lake. The rest of the climb is in the woods. On the top there is nothing to do either. So this climb is purely for the bucket list.

Personally, I rate this climb higher than the Zoncolan. The Zoncolan is longer, but the steepest 5-6km of the Punta Veleno are just 1 or 2% steeper. In combination with the rough road surface, this climb is therefore even more of a struggle.

Wat een ongelofelijk zware klim! Vanaf Zignago stijgt het gedurende 6km gemiddeld ruim 15% met daarin 4km van ruim 16%. De stroken van 17-19% blijven duren en zijn te overleven doordat je in de haarspeldbochten 10 meter respijt hebt. Halverwege zit echter een strook van 1,3km zonder bochten die eindeloos lijkt. Eens je deze strook hebt overleefd zonder af te stappen moet je fietsend boven kunnen komen, hoewel het daarna nog een eind is. De volgende 2km blijven erg zwaar, maar bevatten opnieuw diverse haarspeldbochten. Daarna krijg je een paar honderd meter cadeau waarop je je kunt opladen voor de laatste steile kilometer.

De kwaliteit van het wegdek is matig, maar prima te doen op de racefiets. Om de gaten is prima heen te fietsen, maar de ruwheid van het wegdek maakt de klim extra zwaar. De haarspeldbochten zijn genummerd van 20 naar 1. Voor de uitzichten hoef je het niet te doen. Enkel in de eerste kilometers en vlak voor de top is er zicht op het meer. De rest van de klim is in het bos. Op de top is evenmin iets te beleven. Deze klim doe je derhalve puur voor de bucket list.

Persoonlijk schaal ik deze klim hoger in dan de Zoncolan. De Zoncolan is weliswaar wat langer, maar de steilste 5-6km van de Punta Veleno zijn net 1 of 2% steiler. In combinatie met het ruwe wegdek is deze klim daarom nóg meer harken.
