My goal is to ride on some of the toughest mountains in Italy. As I posted here in the past, I have zero mountains near me on which to practice. So I've been doing hill intervals (when there's no snow) on the only real hill I have near here. My question is twofold:

2. What interval options do you suggest on this hill?
The hill I have is 0.7 miles long. It has an overall gradient of 6% but the first 0.16 miles (844 feet) is 11%.
Zoncolon's profile (the numbers are meters):
