main climb's first switchback

looking back to the road climbing from below
Colle dell'Agnello (2744m) with
riders who took the time trial more seriously.
Mon Viso (3841m) east
from the pass. Highest peak in Italy south of Gran Paradiso, a rocky point set apart from other peaks, recognizable from other
high summits all over the Alps.
