Story by Massimo Riovanto from Mestre, Italy, submitted on 02/10/2012
I did this "beast" in August 22nd 2012,and it was very very hard. If you take a look from a map it seems the classic climb, 10 km long and not to steep, but that day was the warmest day of summer. I started from Lorenzago di Cadore with fresh air but after Passo del Mauria when I turned on the left just before Ampezzo a massive sun was shining directly on the back of my neck. The asphalt started to burn and I felt as to be in my personal hell. Without water during the last part of the climb I saw an angel riding a Pinarello Dogma, he took me to the top where temperature was 28 Celsius !! All the side from Ampezzo is whithout any shadows which is all on the other side coming from Sauris Lake. You''ll join heaven when you arrive on the top, take a table outside the "Rifugio" and taste a big plate of Culatello with a couple of beers !
