Endless climb in which the percentages are divided with Swiss regularity. At no point does it get very steep, but especially the length makes the climb exhausting. In combination with Grimsel and Furka this will be an unforgettable cycling adventure.... read more

Eindeloze beklimming waarbij de percentages met Zwitserse regelmaat zijn verdeeld. Geen enkele moment wordt het erg steil, maar vooral de lengte maakt de klim slopend. In combinatie met Grimsel en Furka wordt dit een onvergetelijk fietsavontuur.

The surroundings are beautiful, the climb itself very long :-)
Not the most beautiful of the region (although that is relative, because there are just pearls around), but still a beautiful col.

De omgeving is schitterend, de klim zelf heel lang :-)
Niet de mooiste van de streek (al is dat relatief, want daar liggen gewoon pareltjes rondom), maar toch nog altijd een pracht van een col.

If you want to ride the loupe with your racing bike from Innertkirchen (Grimselpass, Furkapass, Sustenpass) it is certainly advisable to maintain your fitness well in advance.

The photo was taken right at the beginning. Beautiful climb! We started with 31 degrees at the foot. The last kilometer was cold, hard rain dense fog, I loved it! Very gradual climb, with some hairpin turns at the end with good beautiful views, especially if the weather is better than ours last year ;)

Vrij aan het begin is de foto gemaakt. Mooie klim! Wij begonnen met 31 graden aan de voet. De laatste kilometer was het koud, harde regen dichte mist, ik vond het fantastisch! Heel geleidelijke klim, met op het laatst wat haarspeldbochten met goed mooi uitzicht, zeker als het beter weer is dan bij ons vorige jaar ;)

A climb doesn't get much more regular than this. It takes a while to find the right cadence and you can keep it up until the top, while enjoying the landscape. In the alpine brevet, this is the first climb of the day; ideal to get going.
This is not a spectacular climb with chasms and lots of hairpins, but I really liked it.

Veel regelmatiger dan dit wordt een klim niet gemaakt. Even zoeken naar de goei kadans en die kun je aanhouden tot boven, terwijl je ondertussen van het landschap geniet. In het alpenbrevet is dit de eerste klim van de dag; ideaal om lekker op dreef te komen.
Dit is geen spectaculaire klim met afgronden en veel haarspeldbochten, maar ik vond hem toch wel heel mooi.
