To start, I rode down Via Pedemontane Occidentale until Caneva, then the back way to Sarmede. There is a short steep climb from Sarmede to Rugolo averaging 11%, then a gradual ascent up to Fregona. It's a beautiful cliffside road. At Osigo it joins the main road from Vittorio Veneto to Il Cansiglio. This is a wide well-paved road, with nice tornanti and only one 0.5 km stretch of 11% average grade.
Toward the end the road is engulfed in beautiful forest. It briefly joins the main road coming up from Sarone, then arrives at La Crosetta. I coasted from here down to the turn-off for Monte Pizzoc. This climb starts with a steep couple of kilometers at average 7.8%. The road is narrow with frequently broken pavement. The surrounding forest looks different here- the beech trees are larger and farther apart than down near La Crosettta.
After a nice middle section of 6%, the road goes back to 10% and exits the forest onto a grassy bald mountain. Low flying clouds were billowing around the rolling grassy knolls. A big flock of sheep and goats accompanied by asini were on the left side, enjoying lunch in the cloud bank. Further up, a family of beautiful horses wearing bells were enjoying their unfenced pastureland. One foal was drinking her mother's milk, another was gamboling around. I continued to the top, which was completely socked-in. I'll have to climb this mountain again on a clear day- I've read the views are awesome.
Now I descended all the way down past Sarone to Via Pedemonte. Then another 25 kilometers with 300 meters of climbing home.
