Climb Description

Sella Valcalda is a short climb situated between the two giants of Monte Zoncolan and Monte Crostis. If you plan to do a loop of Zoncolan (climb from Ovaro and descend to Sutrio), you will have to climb Sella Valcalda to arrive back in Ovaro. Don't underestimate it from this side. With Zoncolan in your legs it is reasonably challenging and is often baked in blazing sunshine!

Sella Valcalda is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in very good condition throughout and their is little traffic.
