Muro di Campeggio

Muro di Campeggio: a devastatingly steep paved road

Muro di Campeggio is a short but devastatingly steep climb in the Province of Bologna in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. This asphalted climb is famous as one of the most severe of any road cycling race.

With less than two kilometres in length, it has an average gradient of 15,9% but features sections in excess of 29%. This brutal climb makes Sormano look like a cake-walk.
