Italy - Dolomites 2011

Monte Grappa

The second day, we continues to break ourselves in gently by travelling unladen up Monte Grappa. Years ago a friend had told us one of the routes up was the third hardest climb in Italy. John, naturally wanted to go that way. I opted for a slightly less difficult way up, but don't be fooled, it was hard and I still gained the same massive amount of elevation! Cristine graciously insisted on accompanying me, while Domi went with John. We all met at the top.

The easy way back down!

I could use some EPO too!

My Italian is coming on. I understand this.

The narrow road on top was gorgeous.

After an amazing descent, we headed to Asolo for coffee.
