CLIMB SUMMARY

This is one of several very steep climbs in the Lake Garda area of Italy (Northern Italy at the southern edge of the Italian Alps).  Although we concluded this must be a little known climb because it is over the hill from Garda in a fairly unpopulated area, there were nearly 2,000 attempts for the Strava segment as of late 2017.  

The climb will be introduced to the Giro d’Italia on Stage 17 26 May, 2021.

There are roughly 26 hairpins on this climb and we see reference to it as “Little Stelvio” on the internet.

The rocky mountains with their rich colors and sharp features provide exceptional scenery as we climb from Avio towards and ultimately past San Valentino .

We pass the man-made lake Lago di Pra da Stua at mile 7 and  the tiny community of San Valentino at mile 9.3.  We pass through some short rock tunnels between San Valentino and the finish which is at Rifugio Graziani
