Pian delle Femene

We're having a heatwave, temps up in the mid-30's Celsius.  I kind of scoffed at it because I grew up in Alabama and worked in the Air Force on the flightline in the Mojave Desert, Nellis, Korea, and New Mexico.  But it was a bigger problem than I expected.  After the first half hour I was crawling in low gear.  My original target, Col Visentin, quickly evaporated.  Luckily a cloud floated over so I was able to recover shaded and made it up to the top with no more problems.  I descended fast so I could get some sweat windchill going and by the time I reached the car at Vittorio Veneto I had rejoined the living.  Anyway this is an awesome local climb which I would recommend to anyone in the area.

Tougher than you'd think
