The ascent to Furka is not so difficult: I can see its development from Tiefenbach on and don't scare me. Towards the end, before a couple of hairpins, a steep stretch. It's imposiible not to stop for a moment at Furkapass (till now: 26 km. 130 min 1300mt. of devilment) and also at bends during the descent: route to Grimsel appears clearly, and I also can see the Rhonegletscher at North and Finsterahorn at West. Ascent to Grimsel from Gletsch is short: it takes less than 40 minutes.
I know that from Grimselpass another route takes to another lake in 4km. but Sustenpass is on the way so I prefer to go down to Innertkirchen. The descent is iperfast for me: 25Km. in 30 min.,never happened, and I was scared when I saw 80 Km/h on the cyclo_computer. Innertkirchen is the lowest point in the tour and it's quite hot when I arrive there from the cold of Grimsel; a drinking fountain offers me refreshment before going on (Till now: 68 Km. 270 min 1700 m. devilment)
Route to Susten turns to be very demanding from km 10 (of 28): this time seeing development of the route don't help me. Maybe descent from Grimsel was too fast and too short was the stop at Innertkirchen; I'm tired and the weather is getting worse. View of Steingletscher is magnificient before clouds cover it; at last the Sustenpass ... and the rain (Till now: 96 km. 430 min. 3300)
Sustenpass is ... a tunnel. A steep route from the refuge seems to get to a panoramic place where you can see both sides of the route but some soldiers stop me. The descent is very slow because of a traffic lights due to men at work. From Wassen the last ascent to Goschenen (5km) is not so difficult despite the rain
