Riding the Sanetsch Pass

By Alain Rumpf on March 6, 2013

Col du Sanetsch is one of the difficult climbs around in the Valavis region of Switzerland. The climb itself is 25.7 kms in length with an ascent of 1770 meters. As arduous as the climb sounds upon the summit of the col you are greeted to the sight of a beautiful turquoise coloured water dam.

    Wondering about the temperature there. Shorts in Switzerland in a mountain this time of year, I’m impressed. The same amount as by the scenery.

    Only pity you have to descent the same street as you climbed… Or take the cable car to Gsteig. :-)
    Anyway don’t miss the Auberge de Sanetsch!

      Have you done this climb before ? Is it as long and hard as it looks ?

        I know only the Bern side with the cable car till now, but plan to do it this summer.

    This picture is from last summer. It’s not a particularly difficult climb except for the length of it. I survived it despite my burning legs from an untrained 1000m descent in crampons the day before. I couldnt stand, therefore I never stopped pedalling up that hill, and this smile was only for the camera as I was pretty miserable. Can’t wait to do it again this summer! We did take the cable car down to the other side in order to climb a few more passes, making near 3000m of climbing for the day!
