Turn-by-turn directions

The via ferrata Osvaldo Orsi is for sure one of the most beautiful and impressive walks: from the refugee Pedrotti you go down to the near refugee Tosa, where you leave path nr. 319 and take nr. 303. You go along the way at the foot of Brenta Alta, and then up to Busa degli Sfulmini. The landscape is really impressive, you are surrounded by the most beautiful peaks of the Brenta Dolomites (Brenta Alta, Campanil Bas, Sfulmini, Torre di Brenta, Cima degli Armi). You go on, first to Busa degli Armi and then, always upwards, to spalla dei Massodi, a natural terrace on Val Perse and Cima Roma. A large ledge, the "Sega Grande" permits you to reach the Eastern wall of Cima Brenta and a loose gravel up to a cross: if you turn left you go steep upwards to Bocca di Tuckett (2684m.) and to refugee Tuckett, if you go right, you go down through the Val Perse to refugee Croz dell'Altissimo and, finally, to the Pradel Plateau.
