From Monte Avena I couldn't find the road down to Ponte Serra, where I'd intended to ride up the busy highway to Ponte d'Oltra then climb up Croce d'Aune from the west (the hard side). So I followed the only road I saw (unmarked) which descended back to the Pedavena-Croce d'Aune road at 719 meters (junction marked Col Melon).
I was running short of time now so I did the next best thing- climbed back up to Croce d'Aune and took some photos a short distance down the west side. I'll have to come back and try the full climb from the west later. As it was I had a great descent to Pedavena, where lots of folks were out enjoying the fine weather. Will come back here soon.
