  • Information

From here the path, except for small stretches, becomes stony and muddy. Especially in the final part, when he arrives at the top, he proves to be really rough and, in my opinion, dangerous. Beautiful adventure and splendid panorama at the top with a view of the renowned Dolomites such as Pelmo, Antelao and Civetta. On the other hand, Valbelluna as far as the eye can see.

Difficulty

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.
