Low-flying clouds had moved in below, and the ride down was chilly. Lots of drainage channels to keep you from building up speed (probably a good thing). Back at Mezzomonte I began seeing bikers; they were all over the descent to Coltura and on Via Pedemontana toward home.
This is a great climb. I think it's harder and more peaceful than Aviano-Piancavallo, though much less fun to descend because of the rough pavement and drainage channels.

|Beautiful scenery you climb through around 1300 meters|
