From here the best solution would be to ride your MTb for another couple of very steep km and then turn left towards Carette. The altitude here is 1820 m a.s.l. In this short section you are on Sentiero Italia, signposted with n. 201. At Carette leave Sentiero Italia and descend to the left towards an Alpine hut, below which starts a road completely suitable for bikes with many ups and downs taking you in few minutes to Chemp de Solez. The view is stunning: you are in front of the Mortirolo Pass and you can gaze at one of the most amazing sections of the Orobie Alps in middle high Valtellina. Turn left, enter the wood and climb down the short technical passages to Dovere Alte. Go right following an up and down trail in the wood covered with pine leaves, and get to Val Deserta and later to Scernic. Meet another short flat section and a little stream and in a few moment get to the start of the most interesting part of the descent: 600 m drop along 65 hairpins that can be covered on MTb only whether provided with a good descent technique. Cross an old cemented road and, further down, the paved track taken on the way up. Keep descending along a few more hairpins till you get to 900m a.s.l. in Val di Tei. This track is a stream of emotions, a new landscape and a soft surface that moves along for some hundreds meters in the shade of ancient pines and firs. here comes a scenic and bright section overhanging over the stream Roasco - a downright engineering artwork from hundred years ago. you get to Val Tov and have two choices to follow: the hard track, if you continue on the left on a road with a gradient of nearly 50% (Val di Scala) impossible to be covered if the surface is wet-, or the easier track, if you go right and follow a short ascent that will take you to the paved road you climbed before and then down to the village of Grosotto. At the end of the steep section follow the mule track till you get to the village near the Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary.
