Story by ben edwards from stoke, United Kingdom, submitted on 14/11/2013
i climbed this in september 13 with 5 mates. We were on mountain bikes doing a munich to venice outing. This was the last big mountain pass of our trip.
Setting off from Mel it was a steady plod, though a section part way up was signposted as something like 10% but was probably nearer 25% and some of us walked. A bit of gravel track took us to onto more tarmac. No traffic what so ever. Wooded in sections and reminiscent of britain (almost). At the top opens up to an alpine meadow. The descent down towards Follina has stunning vistas all the way to the adriatic.
Id recommend this as an alternative to the san boldo pass (though the tunnels by all accounts are extraordinary).
