For a long, long time I was occupied with the idea of crossing the Monte Cristallo massif by bike. Whenever we stood at the Dürrensee, we thought: "Great look, but is there something going on with the bike?"No sooner said than done - and now we know more: It was one of our most impressive tours so far. It started in Schluderbach and led us to the Rifugio Son Forca. The Dibona via ferrata was already marked everywhere and so we were on the right track.But from the old chairlift station we had to carry through the Grà de Stounies. Here, however, we kept to the left and did not follow the path to Rifugio G. Lorenzi. The climb pushed us to our limits, it felt like we were taking one step forward and two backwards. Minutes and hours passed, but when we reached the Cresta Bianca at 2,932 meters above sea level, everything was forgotten - a tremendous sight!And what the trail towards Cimabanche then had to offer was from a different world! Between S1 and S4 things went downhill alternately. Unfortunately, after about 100 meters of altitude, the trail was destroyed by a storm in the lower area, but that didn't change the fact that the tour was simply amazing!
