95 KMS – 2580 ELEVATION – 7/8 DIFFICULTY – RECOMMENDED SEASON: Summer
CLIMB MORTIROLo pass FROM TOVO
You can climb the Mortirolo in three different ways. From the west-side, you can start from Tovo as well as Mazzo. From the east-side, you can climb from Monno.
I have chosen the one from Tovo which is less difficult of Mazzo, but still very technical climb up to the top. At the arrival, I was nearly surprised I made it, after so many hairpin bends, it was amazing. I should say it was tough but I really enjoyed especially when I’ve carried on for the street that stays at altitude until it reaches Aprica pass and then goes down. The view from there it is just great and being on top of everything makes you feel so powerful, you know what I mean right? In the GPX you will also find in the last part a connection with the popular “Valtellina pathway” towards Sondrio, the right relaxing way to complete the tour.
