Von Rossa steigt man langsam in Richtung Süd- Südosten. Man geht weiter über die Klippe bis Rià del Frott, der in einem wunderbaren Wasserfall endet, der in Augio besichlich ist. Man verfolgt links dem Fluss Rià di Frott Richtung Carnalta, im Tal de de l'ör. Man durchquert der Wald Bosch de Calvaresc für zusätzlich die Alp de Calvaresc Sot zu erreichen. Bei der Abzweigung: links geht man zum Cavarescsee; rechts bringt den Weg mit einer leichten Steigung nach der Buffalorahütte (2100m)
