CLIMB SUMMARY

Ride 10.3 kilometers gaining 937 meters at 9.1% average grade to elevation 1,401 meters.

This challenging ride begins in Buchs in northeastern Switzerland through several hairpins to its dead end finish.

Climb summary from PJAMM friend and contributor Helmuth Dekkers:

If people have heard of an ascent called Malbun they most likely know the ascent in Liechtenstein from the capital Vaduz to the Malbun ski resort. But Switzerland has its own Malbun ascent that starts in Buchs, a small town that dates from the medieval times. Where the Liechtenstein ascent to Malbun is on a wide road, the Swiss ascent to Malbun is a small, quiet road that takes you upwards through the woods with some nice views here and there on the Rhine valley and the Alpstein mountains behind it. It's quite a bit steeper than the Malbun ascent in Liechtenstein with 9.5% on average versus 8.2% on average but the good news is that it is 4km shorter. Still, you'll have to do plenty of work to make your way up! At the top is a farm called Malbun, hence the name, and it claims to be at an altitude of 1411m but in fact it is just 1381m. The farm used to offer some refreshments but unfortunately this is no longer the case. So bring your own supplies when cycling this tough ascent.
