|How to get there||
From the south you can start in Molina (811m) and go via Carano. You can go through Cavalèse too and I show the hardest variant here. Both described roads has a no traffic sign at one section, but usually that is mostly meant for cars, I think. If coming from Passo di San Lugano (1100m), you would do well to take the road via Carano. If coming from the southeast you start the climb in Tèsero (988m) and then take off the road up to Reiterjoch/Passo di Pampeago (1996m) and instead cross the Passo di Pramadícco (1443m (1451m)) from Stava and then up the same road as before.
From the north you could take the same nice road through Eggental/Val d’Ega from Kardaun/Cardano (286m) as could take you to the Reiterjoch/Passo di Pampeago, Karerpass/Jouf de Ciareja/Passo di Costalunga (1752m) or Nigerpass/Passo Nigra (1688m). This has long new tunnels at the start, but it might eventually be possible to use the previously unusable old road that is very nice in this part. One would do well to make the climb over Karneid/Carnedo to bypass the tunnels on the valley road, but it involves a lot more climbing.
If you come from Karerpass or Nigerpass, you will start the northern climb at Birchabruck/Ponte Nova (876m). If you come from Passo Pampeago, you start the climb at Rauth/Novale (1280m). Finally, if coming from Ora/Auer (247m) over Aldein/Aldino and Deutschnofen/Nova Ponente, you will start a bit down below Rauth/Novale at turn-off (1130m) for Weissenstein/Pietralba (1520m) and these villages. It is steep also on the north side from Rauth. (High point (pass sign) of the road is 1818m just before the pass on the north side.) Also included the climbs from Neumarkt/Egna (220m) and Ora/Auer (247m) via Passo di San Lugano (1100m), and the alternative via Gleno/Glen to Truden/Tròdena is up to 30% at one point.
|Other comments||It is an easy road from Passo di Lavazè to Passo di Oclini/Joch Grimm/Jochgrimm (1990m), which is very recommended to visit as you have very good views from there. Also named: Lavazejoch. (Photo taken at the nearby Passo di Oclini/Joch Grimm.)
