Passo Fadalto

Passo Fadalto is a beautiful spot north of Vittorio Veneto between Col Visentin (1763m) to the west and Monte Pizzoc (1565m) to the east.   The pass lies at the head of Lago di Santa Croce, surrounded by snow-capped peaks of Belluno and Friuli.  Go see it!

I took the low route through Caneva and Pinidello, then Anzano and Vittorio Veneto.  The gorge up through Nove and Fadalto was quite windy, as usual.  I decided to circle the lake counterclockwise- seemed to work out better with the north wind.  Descent was fun and the long flat stretch to Fiaschetti made a nice rest before the climb back home.
