Sharon + Ken rode this famous loop around the Gruppo di Sella mountains. It goes over four passes: Pordoi, Campolongo, Gardena (or Grdner), Sella.  About 1500 vertical meters of climbing in 53 km (if do not include Canazei), including some sustained climbing at steepness grade of 7%, some at 8%.
[ A year-and-a-half later we skied (using lifts) around this same group -- see ski Sella Ronda ]
