CLIMB SUMMARY

 

Cycling the mighty Alpe di Aleccio

Ride 8.6 kilometers gaining 1,044 meters at 12.2% average grade.

This beast of a climb is located in the Lepontine Alps in northern Italy near its border with Switzerland. This area is popular for a hike from Crego to Plain of Aleccio. There are many signs along the way to guide us.

In spite of the signs, be sure to take a map or GPS with the route loaded because there are some tricky turns up to the gate.

Gate blocking route at kilometer 2.1

There is a sign that we translate from Italian to say “Area subject to video surveillance for security reasons.”  Okay - that does not translate to “Do Not Enter” . . . . so, we went for it.  We encountered no traffic on the final 6.4 kilometers (13.6%), thus, nessun problema (no problem!).  However, in an abundance of caution, we must note that there is a gate on this climb.

The steepest kilometer averages an ungodly 20.1%   😅

Towards the finish of the 20% kilometer.

 

The Alpe Aleccio Agricultural Works Consortium building at km 7.8.

Finish

The road is very narrow and in decent shape as of August, 2018.
