Profile Forcella Staulanza-south

In my opinion, this is one of the less interesting climbs in the Dolomites. A characteristic property of this ride to the Forcella Staulanza is the continuous variation of the slope. The steepest part appears soon after the beginning in Dont. It is a stretch of two kilometers with an inclination of 8-11% and a 250 meter long section of 12%. Thereafter and up to the pass, the inclination remains below 10%. After the relatively steep start, the road mainly passes through villages on the next approximately six kilometers, of which the tourist village of Palafavera is the last one. From Palafavera four kilometers remain to the pass. On the left lies Monte Civetta, of which the summit was hidden behind the clouds as I cycled here. On the right lies Monte Pelmo, beautiful but less impressive than from the other side of the pass.
