The downside: what lies high up, isn’t easy to get to. the starting point is located on the south face of the Val di Fiemme. In the summer months the climb is a sweaty one. the Passo oclini lies in between the corno Bianco and corno nero twin peaks. Many a mountain biker likely wished for the legs of a giant while pedaling on the steep forest roads and navigating the long, grueling trails.
