Punta Veleno

prev - next

Elevation: 1156m

Described by many as tougher and steeper than Monte Zoncolan. I would agree, horribly steep with very little respite, (the first half averages 17%).

You have very little opportunity to recover between the ramps. It's only in the last 2km that the gradient eases and you can enjoy the pretty terrifying views.
