My thanks to reader Gian Marco who sends two photographs that he took today showing the most difficult section of the Pompeiana climb where there are two switchbacks and three ramps, here the grade is 14% at the steepest point (click on photos to enlarge).
|The green dot is where the photo of the lower switchback, below, is taken from|

Grazie Gian Marco!
