Col Artent - Malga Garda

Col Artent is a very special climb.  It arises from Lentiai on the banks of Fiume Piave, quite steeply up to the scene of one of the last small battles of WW I.  There is a chapel and gravestones of a few of the final casualties lost in the waning weeks of the war.  

From there I continued on a good gravel road to Malga Garda at 1300 meters.  Great views from here of Dolomiti Bellunese, Piave valley, Monte Cesen, Monte Grappa massif, with unusually good seeing thanks to the temporale Saturday night.  Visit here if you can.

  1. Salve,
    Questa salita si può fare in bici da corsa? C'è rischio di forare le gomme sulla strada sterrata?


    Saluti dall'Olanda,

  2. Sì, si puo. Raccomando copertone forte, non super leggero. Mi serve Michelin Pro 4 Endurance 28mm , ma sono anche altri bene.
