Beautiful climb. Although you're on the road a while and it takes a while. Gravity is to the last 10 km's. However, the view is the last km's more than worth it. That is really enjoy. There are some cars passing by with moments. But there is a good tarmac and the track in very w... read more

27 kms of pure happiness! The difficulty is more in the length than in the rather uniform percentages. Varied landscapes including beautiful summits, notably the Titlis, several glaciers and some waterfalls. At the pass, don't hesitate to take the small road on the right to the restaurant (pies, sausages and cheese yum), and also to cross the tunnel to admire the valley and the peaks on the Uri side.

On the way down, take the time to stop and admire all the viewpoints.

27 kms de pur bonheur ! La difficulté est plus dans la longueur que dans les pourcentages assez uniformes. Paysages variés incluant de beaux sommets, notamment le Titlis, plusieurs glaciers et quelques cascades. Au col ne pas hésiter à prendre la petite route à droite jusqu'au restaurant (tartes, charcuteries et fromage miam), et aussi à traverser le tunnel pour admirer la vallée et les sommets côté Uri.

À la descente prendre le temps de s'arrêter pour admirer tous les points de vue

Really a beautiful climb. Ridden on a Friday morning in late July, the traffic was not too bad. The tarmac is mostly very good.

27,7 km is of course very long, especially if you do not want to stop on the way. It makes a difference that it never gets really steep and that heavier parts are often alternated with less heavy ones.

The last part is above 2000 metres. I had a tough time there!

Echt een prachtige beklimming. Gereden op een vrijdagochtend eind juli, het viel me heel erg mee qua verkeer. Het asfalt is overwegend erg goed.

27,7 km is natuurlijk wel erg lang, zeker als je onderweg niet wilt stoppen. Het scheelt dat het nergens echt heel steil wordt en dat zwaardere stukken vaak worden afgewisseld met minder zware stukken.

Het laatste deel fiets je boven de 2000 meter. Toen had ik het wel even zwaar!

End of September 2021. Bit similar to the Grimselpass something longer and higher. Many short tunnels (light)
But very beautiful. (A bad day) 80m below the top man with hammer. Eat and descend.

Eind September 2021. Beetje vergelijkbaar met de Grimselpass iets langer en hoger. Vele korte tunnels (lampje)
Maar heel mooi. (a bad day) 80m onder de top man met hamer. Bijkomen eten en afdalen.

A very nice environment, you can fully enjoy the beautiful nature. The top can sometimes be a bit misty so you better be extra careful. It can also be cold, but that is so on top of high mountains.

Een heel mooie omgeving, je kan volop genieten van de mooie natuur. De top kan soms wel wat mistig zijn waardoor je beter extra voorzichtig moet zijn. Het kan er ook koud zijn, maar dat is zo op de top van hoge bergen.

Difficult dilemma: continue to climb to the top, or take a trip to the glacier?
About 400 meters below the summit you can turn right (at a parking lot and mountain hotel) to a small but well paved road to the Steingletscher. That is also a small climb, but worth it if you are willing to park your bike and walk to the glacier.

About the climb: beautiful! There can be quite some traffic. The descent I descended with a huge smile and lasted for m'n feeling very long.

Moeilijk dilemma: doorklimmen tot aan de top, of toch even een uitstapje naar de gletsjer?
Zo'n 400 hoogtemeters onder de top kun je (bij een parkeerplaats en berghotel) naar rechts afslaan om via een klein maar goed geasfalteerd weggetje naar de Steingletscher te fietsen. Ook dat is nog een klein klimmetje, maar zeker de moeite waard als je bereid bent ook even je fiets te parkeren en naar de gletsjer te lopen.

Over de klim: prachtig! Er kan wel redelijk wat verkeer zijn. De afdaling ben ik met een enorme glimlach afgedaald en duurde voor m'n gevoel enorm lang.

Beautiful climb.
Although you're on the road a while and it takes a while.
Gravity is to the last 10 km's.
However, the view is the last km's more than worth it.
That is really enjoy.
There are some cars passing by with moments.
But there is a good tarmac and the track in very wide.
So if there is traffic, they certainly do not hinder you.
Also convenient is that you can enjoy a drink at the restaurant at the top.

Prachtige klim.
Al ben je wel even onderweg en duurt het dus wel even.
Zwaartepunt ligt naar de laatste 10 km's.
Echter is het uitzicht de laatste km's meer dan de moeite waard.
Dat is echt genieten.
Er passeren wel wat auto's met momenten.
Maar er ligt een goed asfalt en de baan in zeer breed.
Dus als er verkeer is, hinderen ze u zeker niet.
Ook handig is dat je bovenaan kan genieten van wat drinken bij het restaurant op de top.

From Innertkirchen it takes quite a while before you reach the 'last' village of Gadmen, but that village takes longer than you expect; the triftbahn is the start, but only at the camping it's over and the 'real' work begins! It all turns and turns nicely. After Steingletscher come the real pictures: the whole climb is worth the view for the last 3/4 kilometer alone.

Vanuit Innertkirchen duurt het aardig lang voor je bij het ‘laatste’ dorp Gadmen bent, maar dat dorp duurt langer dan je verwacht; de triftbahn is het begin, maar pas bij de camping is het voorbij en begint het ‘echte’ werk! Het keert en draait allemaal lekker. Na Steingletscher komen de echt plaatjes: de hele klim is het uitzicht de laatste 3/4 kilometer alleen al waard.

You start enthusiastically in Innertkirchen, and when you get to Gadmen you realize that you're still nowhere and you're already in a good piece. A beautiful climb, but very heavy.

Je begint enthousiast in Innertkirchen, en als je dan bij Gadmen bent, besef je je dat je nog eigenlijk helemaal nergens bent en je toch al wel aardig stuk zit. Een prachtige klim, maar erg zwaar.

Excellent climb with good road surface, when we were there it was not busy, on the week before the summer holidays. The pass was just one week open because of the snow that was still there.

Prima klim met goed wegdek, toen wij er waren was het er niet druk, door de weeks voor de zomer vakantie. De pas was net een week open vanwege de sneeuw die er nog lag..

The climb can also be done from Wassen. Maybe you can add this side also to the site.

De klim is ook te doen vanaf Wassen. Wellicht kan je deze kant ook toevoegen op de site.

In the beginning you think this is good to do but the last 10 km are heavy but super nice with views of a beautiful glacier. it is cold upstairs

In het begin denk je deze is goed te doen maar de laatste 10 km zijn zwaar maar wel super mooi met uitzicht op een mooie gletscher. het wordt boven wel koud
