Rifugio Dolomieu al Dolada
When we arrive at the Dolomieu hut, the weather is excellent but the snow worries us a little. In fact, shortly after the refuge, we have to cross a very steep gully completely covered in snow. So we decide to give up and make an appointment for the summit on a summer day.
Hikers - Itineraries on paths or evident traces in various types of terrain (pastures, debris, stony ground ...). They are generally marked with paint or cairns (pyramid-shaped stacked stones that allow you to identify the route even from a distance). They can also take place in snowy but only slightly inclined environments. They require the equipment described in the part dedicated to hiking and sufficient orientation skills, walking training for a few hours.
