Altitude is not a prerequisite for a climb to hurt. The 7th stage on the Giro Rosa does not exceed 300 metres, but fatigue will have its impact nevertheless. The race is played out on a hilly route in the Veneto region with the Culmine Salita della Rosina and the climb to San Giorgio di Perlena standing out. Both ascents are tackled twice.
Following an undulating opening, with the Monte di Malo as steep intermezzo, the climbing gets underway after approximately 70 kilometres. It is the San Giorgio di Perlena, which will also serve as the final haul up later on. Up next is the Rosina, which is tackled twice with 15 kilometres intervals. The route then descents onto a flat section towards a steep climb to Movena. The riders move through the village with 10 kilometres remaining.
As said, the finale climbs back up to San Giorgio di Perlena. The ascent is approximately 3 kilometres long while the average slope sits at 6%.
