After a brief descent turn onto the road for Monte Pizzoc. After a bit of climbing you pass through an area of even older-growth faggi about 5 feet in diameter, the real patriarchs of il Cansiglio. Then onto the grassy pastureland surrounding the summit. Wonderful clear air up for viewing the mountains, the plains, and even the shimmering Adriatico on the horizon.
The descent is long and a bit hyperthermic even in mid-July. I felt slightly high on mountains the rest of the afternoon.
