... A short downhill followed by a long uphill, but this is a narrow road so easier to walk. After that, a downhill then flat back to our starting point. The views from the "back" side of Tre Cime are spectacular and from this aspect you can really see the three chimneys. I'm glad I made the effort. The visibility all day isphenomenal, even as some clouds develop during the afternoon. It takes us 5 1/2 hours with about an hour break for ...

We managed to fit in two four hour routes across two different mountain ranges in and around Auronzo. Our first route allowed us to gain 1000metres by van first up quite literally the steepest and most breathtaking road ever, 6km took us nearly 45minutes of tight twists and turns, luckily a one way road!
