Just before descending to the hollow I'd seen a rough road ascending steeply to the north. So now I tried that and was very challenged to complete but did arrive at the end at La Forchia above some cliffs at 852 meters. On the way up there I came across 4 wild goats, which you can tell from deer because their hindquarters are more square, they're a little shorter/stockier, and they have short unbranched horns with little rings every inch or two. I couldn't get a picture because they fled for their lives.
On the way back down I looked back while passing through some meadows and saw Madonna della Neve on the mountain top- will return for a closer view. Fun ride.
