Coming from Canazei you leave the busy SS48, when leaving Pozza di Fassa, turn right up the valley turning through the touristy Vigo di Fassa. First few kilometres uphill with some short but steep sections (+10) winding through pine forests with sporadic views of the valley. Last 3,5 km. to the summit there is a slight climb on a plateau so you can change gears more often. At the pass height there is a restaurant (supply), a chair lift to the Latemar massif and apparently a beautiful view. Fog/rain and clouds were the spoilers.
(Thanks to Climbfinder-Google street view I've seen it all now!)
Distance to the top on blue rectangular road signs every kilometer.

Komende van Canazei verlaat je de drukke SS48,bij buiten fietsen Pozza di Fassa, rechts naar omhoog het dal uit draaiend door het toeristische Vigo di Fassa. Eerste kilometers goed bergop met enkele korte pittige stroken(+10%) slingerend door dennenbossen met sporadisch zicht op het dal. Laatste 3,5 km. tot de top gaan lichtlopend op een soort plateau zodat er groter kan geschakeld worden. Op de pashoogte is er horeca (bevoorrading),een zetellift naar het Latemar massief en naar het schijnt een prachtig uitzicht. Mist/regen en wolken waren toen spelbreker.
(dankzij Climbfinder-Google street view heb ik alles nu gezien!)
Afstand tot de top op blauwe rechthoekige verkeersborden om de kilometer.

I was still recovering from the Pordoi, not only mentally but also physically because it was very cold up there. After the descent the whole team together and on to Bolzano. According to the road book there is one more climb and then it's over.
The sun makes me slow, my thoughts are already at the finish and I don't really want to climb anymore.
But the Dolomites still have something in store for me and the Costalunga was the dessert.
From the village you turn into the climb and when I look at my trip summary it says a climb of about 4 km, well just sit down and finish. But it keeps on going and the legs start to protest more and more. You get higher and higher and the enjoyment turns into annoyance, just because you're mentally ready and want to finish with correct data and now you climb over 6 kilometers and it's still going up. Is the climb of 4 km still coming or did they make a mistake in the length?
Afterwards it was of course great and since it is voluntary you just have to enjoy but at that moment I wanted to stop.
At the top there is no view but just forests around you. We are back in Trentino and it is not far.
All in all this pass (also called the Karerpass) is beautiful, steep from the beginning but on the plateau you can breathe a little again. On to the next and what we did not know yet unfortunately in the valley a huge hailstorm and we had to flee into the woods for shelter. It is all in a days work in the mountains.

Ik was nog aan het bijkomen van de Pordoi, niet alleen geestelijk maar ook fysiek daar het erg koud was boven. Na de afdaling het hele team samen en door naar Bolzano. Volgens het roadboek nog 1 klim en dan is het gedaan.
De zon maakt me loom, mijn gedachten zijn al bij de finish en ik wil eigenlijk niet echt meer klimmen.
Maar de Dolomieten hebben nog wat in petto en de Costalunga was het toetje.
Vanuit het dorp draai je de klim op en als ik op mijn ritoverzicht kijk staat er een klim van ca 4 kilomter, ach ja even zitten en klaar. Maar hij blijft maar doorgaan en de benen gaan steeds meer protesteren. JE komt steeds hoger en het genieten slaat om in ergernis; gewoon omdat je geestelijk klaar bent en naar de finish wil met juiste data en nu klim je la ruim 6 kilometer en het gaat nog steeds omhoog. Komt die klim van 4 kilometer dan nog of is er een fout gemaakt in de lengte?!
Achteraf was het natuurlijk machtig en daar het vrijwillig is moet je gewoon genieten maar op dat moment had ik wel willen kappen.
Boven geen uitzicht maar gewoon bossen om je heen. We zijn weer in Trentino en het is niet ver meer.
Al met al is deze pas ( ook wel de Karerpass) wel mooi, steil vanaf het begin maar op het plateau kun je weer een beetje ademhalen. Op naar de volgende en wat we toen nog niet wisten helaas in het dal een enorme hagelbui waarbij we het bos in moesten vluchten om te schuilen. It is all in a days work in the mountains.
