Solo trip from the Tre Croci pass to the Lorenzi hut. Attempted via ferrata to the top of the Cristallo but I immediately gave up because of too much confusion of rude people (also due to tiredness). On the way back, stop at the Son Fiorca hut.

Expert hikers - are generally signposted itineraries but with some difficulties: the terrain can consist of slippery slopes of grass, mixed rocks and grass, stony ground, slight snowy slopes or even single easy-to-climb rocky passages (use of hands in some places) . Although they are routes that do not require particular equipment, equipped sections can be presented even if they are not demanding. They require a good knowledge of the alpine environment, a safe step and the absence of vertigo. Physical preparation must be adequate for a fairly continuous day of walking.
