“The paved road prelude to the Tracciolino is a killer climb, averaging 12% grade.”

This is the road you'll have to climb to get to the awesome Tracciolino
cliffside trail. It's paved most of the way to the top. Just before you reach the Tracciolino
, the road ends abruptly and you'll probably have to shoulder the bike the last couple hundred feet.
There is no technical difficulty (it is a paved road after all), but the climbing is pretty healthy. At least there are a lot of switchbacks from which you can enjoy views of Lago di Como below you.
