Among the eight ascents of the
Sellaronda (four passes in two directions)
the climb from the east to the Passo Pordoi is the hardest
climb effort points.
Nevertheless, this climb is by itself, without cycling the whole lap,
not really difficult
since there are only 638 elevation meters
and since the slope is of moderate magnitude (7%) and very regular.
There are dozens of hairpin bends between Arabba and the pass
but these are not as impressive as for example the hairpin bends of the
Passo dello Stelvio, which are much sharper.
The scenic highlight is the last stretch before the pass
with the mighty faces of the Sellamassif on the right
and the Langkofel behind the pass.
