The approach to the pass has been from Mazzo di Valtellina in 11 of 13 Giro appearances.

The 1990 and 2017 Giro used the Edolo approach to climb Mortirolo.  

We are on a busy highway for the first 4.5 km until turning onto a much lesser travelled and well maintained road for the majority of the climb.  This is the “back way” to the passo - it is far to the south and isolated from the other 3 routes which all overlap themselves at some point.  The Edolo path to Passo Mortirolo is the only approach that does not share the road with one of the other 4 routes to the top.

Beautiful views as we climb.

There are several nice hairpins on this climb.

No shortage of pass signs at the top.
