CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Passo del Mortirolo - hairpin, Marco Pantani memorial.

Cycling Passo Mortirolo from Tovo - it’s a very hard climb!

Ride 12.2 kilometers gaining 1277 meters at 10.5% average grade.

This is another route up Mortirolo that is best done with at least a 30t cassette as it averages 10.5% for 12.2 km.  While this climb presents a great cycling challenge, it is the least scenic of the climbs - for much of the route we are bordered by thick forest which blocks our view of all but the roadway ahead - on a climb that registers a 10.5% as an average grade, perhaps just the road in below and directly in front is all we need . . .
