Above Dardago the paved road comes to an end and a gravel road continues the ascent. This is Strada Venezia delle Neve, a 1960's ski resort developer's abandoned route to Piancavallo. Today was the first time I've ridden it without long stretches pushing the bike. There were a couple of rock piles I had to hop off for but otherwise I rode the whole thing. The trail eventually ends up in a beautiful area of grassy pastures bounded by forest and rockfaces: Sauc. I will try exploring from the top soon so I can concentrate on the surroundings rather than the climb. Wonderful wilderness ride.
Croda di San Tome
Way harder on loose rock than the numbers indicate.
