Met an older couple of hikers on the way back toward Zoufplan and when I told them my plight the fellow mentioned he'd done it by descending a ways and carrying the bike on his shoulder. He pointed out the path a bit below. I believe he could do it because this guy was huge, like the strongman at the county fair in an old movie. I know there's no way my scrawny self could do it hauling a bike. I may try coming from Crostis or Ravascletto next time and ascend the ridge from the west.
|Monte Avernis, meadows on left where I biked last week|
|Monte Paularo on the right, where I climbed the other day; |
below is valley road to Timau and Passo del Croce Carnico
|Alpine lakes in the valley below Zoufplan|
|Monte Coglians, highest peak in Friuli 2780 meters|
|To north, peaks above Timau and Austria|
|Tough climb; the max grade is erroneous|
