This is another of the Lake Garda area’s hidden treasures. This climb begins in close proximity to another climb in the 100-150 Top World Climbs, Avio-San Valentino which begins a few miles to the north and on the opposite side of Autostrada 22.
We start immediately with 10 big hairpins over 3.8 miles at 8.5%. There is a 12.6% quarter mile, 11.3% half mile and the longest sustained grade for a full mile on this route is 9.7%.
The road can be a bit rough in places and is narrow throughout
There have been only 256 Strava attempts on this segment, a testament that it is not well known to the cycling community. The road is not very busy and you can ride in general privacy on a very challenging road, but otherwise, this is not one of the great Italian climbs, although it is worth your while if you are in the area.
