How to get there I have only climb this on the shorter north side from Au (789m), which is a steep pass up to Damüls (1353m), where you start if coming down from Furkajoch (1758m), and easy from there. The longer southwest climb starts either in Thüringen (551m) or in Ludesch (561m) nearby. Both these roads includes climbing to 929m height (somehwat steep up here) or to 986m height before they join each other after a descent to the valley floor by a bridge at Garsella (735m). From there the climb continues slowly, but eventually will get steep at ca. 11% for two kilometres according to salite.ch profiles.
Other comments This is a decently nice pass, but the nearby Furkajoch (1758m) is more impressive. There is at least one restaurant/hotel at the pass and they had compressor air available to inflate your tyres outside when I was there. (Photo of me in bad weather at Furkajoch, 2004.)
