Destination

Falcade (Molino)

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent: from the location “Piano dei Casoni” follow the trail of mountain Valley “Venegia” till “Campigolo della Vezzana”.

Now you are in front of the steep,  but initially wide slope. Bear up, till you reach the first station of the ropeway conveyor for refuge Mount Mulaz. The last section is very steep and needs crampons in case of hard snow conditions.

Now you face another large channel. Head up till the basement rocks of mount “Focobon”. Bang a left  and soon you’ll hit “Passo Mulaz” and the second station of the ropeway conveyor.

If you want to get to the top of “Mulaz” you need to climb the steep slope above the pass (with skis or preferably walking-ice axe and crampons might be useful). Below the rock band take the fairly long travers to the right and then climb the short slope. Keep going right (north) till you reach the summit cross (2906 m) with its beautiful bell (allow 1 h from the pass).

Watch out for any wind slabs.

Descent: by the same route or...

 

Descent: from the Pass traverse left to reach mountain cabin Mulaz (2751 m - winter room open). From the refuge descend the slope. Then after a long traverse to the right, trying to avoid losing altitude, descent another beautiful slope (here it’ s possible to take also small channels with some more challenging sections). Again crossing to the right you are in front of another great wide slope without troublesome rocky ledges. Follow the valley, that in the lower section gets pretty narrow. Here you need to descent partly in the gorge of the “Focobon” stream till you reach a street, still allowing a nice downhill to the hamlet of Molino di Falcade.

Return with chair lift to Passo Valles or hire bus to Pian dei Casoni.

From Predazzo drive on SS 50 direction Passo Rolle. Shortly after location Paneveggio (13,8 km from Predazzo) turn left on SP 81 to Passo Valles. After 2,9 km you reach  the parking lot of Val Venegia.
