Rifugio Lunelli or Passo Monte Croce – Rifugio Berti – Ferrata Zandonella – Croda Rossa peak– Castelliere – Passo Monte Croce or Rifugio Lunelli Description: the first 200 meters of the ferrata with two ladders and fixed rope is very strenuous and exposed. Descent by some exposed passages to the east part is easier. Fantastic rock scenery! The via ferrata is not in good conditions, especially the steel part. Also the distance from one hook to the next hook is too much and there is also danger of falling rocks! Variant: Access trough the Croda Rossa meadows- ¾ way to the Croda Rossa peak- transverse band- “Sentinellascharte”, ca. 200m in descent, on the left is the entrance- ca. 500m saved altitude. Indications: red-white-red with the nr. 101, via ferrata red-green triangles Highlights: the fantastic rock scenery of the Vallon Popera, the steep passages of the ferrata and the panorama from the top. Starting point: Rifugio Lunelli (1568m) – from the Passo Monte Croce towards Padola, before Padola turn right in the Valgrande until the parking place at the rifugio Lunelli. Duration: total 7 ¾ hours, ascent 4 ¾ hours, descent 3 hours Diffrence in altitude: ca. 1400m

Only walkable if the current weather conditions are good. WARNING: The GPX data may differ from reality. For information your contact is the Alpinschule Sexten Drei Zinnen +39 0474 710375 info@alpinschule-dreizinnen.com
