|APPROACHING INFO||ROUTE DESCRIPTION||RED TAPE|
1) By car from Asiago: leave the city in direction Passo Vezzena by road SP 339 until Roana.Asiago until here. Follow the white road until the parking place near Malga Galmarara (9 Km.). From here it begins the the distance on foot along the CAI path 830 marked by red-white-red. To park here.
2) By car from Trento: abandon the freeway A22 del Brennero at the Trento Centro escape; then follow the indications for Padova-Venezia and to take SS 47 of the Valsugana; continue on SS 47 until the escape for Altipiani di Folgaria and Lavarone.Passo Vezzena, than it catches up. To continue straight in Asiago direction. One first dirt road on the left who knows them towards the Larici locality does not go considered. To attend instead some other fine Km at the beginnig (on left) of the dirt road of the Val Galmarara (little visible yellow trust!) and to follow it until Malga Galmarara mountain barn, than is met after 9 km. To park here.
● From parking place you follow the old road of war (path SAT 830). After approximately half hour in Busa della Pesa locality (m. 1,755) path SAT 830 abandons the military road. I council instead continuing along the road, is for its historical value, is because in reality not ago to lose much time and the progression is easyr. Leaving on the left the Tre Fontane bivouac you reach the crossing with the road of war "Mecenseffy Strasse", that you ignore continuing straight until the Bivacco Italia bivouac and to the crossing Bivio Italia. Here you abandon the road and follow the path SAT 835 until the crossroad of quota m. 1,985 where you continue along SAT 835. It is arrived shortly to the crossroad of quota m. 2,175 where path SAT 835 continues towards the summit, that it comes caught up without particular problems (two crosses of summit and sign SAT). Return by the same path. In alternatives: from the top follow the indication to Bus
a delle Dodese bivouac and spend the night to there.
● Unevennesses and times:
Parking place-crossroad Bivio Italia: m. 373 - 1,30 hours.
Crossroad Bivio Italia-Cima Dodici: m. 354 - 1,30 hours.
Totally parking place-Cima Dodici: total unevennesses m. 727 - 3,00 hours.
● Italian version: Dal parcheggio seguire la vecchia strada di guerra (sentiero SAT 830). Dopo circa mezz'ora in località Busa della Pesa (m. 1,755) il sentiero SAT 830 abbandona la strada militare e sale fra i mughi. Io consiglio invece di continuare lungo la strada, sia per il suo valore storico, sia perchè in realtà non fa perdere molto tempo e la progressione è più agevole. Lasciando a sinistra il Bivacco Tre Fontane si giunge all'incrocio con la strada di guerra Mecenseffy Strasse, che ignoriamo proseguendo diritti fino al Bivacco Bivio Italia e all'incrocio Bivio Italia. Qui abbandoniamo la strada e seguiamo il sentiero SAT 835 fino al bivio di quota m. 1,985 dove proseguiamo lungo il SAT 835. Si arriva in breve al bivio di quota m.2,175 dove il sentiero SAT 835 prosegue verso la vetta, che viene raggiunta senza particolari problemi (due croci di vetta e segnavia SAT). Ritorno dallo stesso percorso. In alternativa dalla cima si può raggiungere in 40 minuti il bivacco Busa delle Dodese per passarvi la notte.
● Bivouacs and emergency shelters along the route or in the vicinities:
• Bivouac "Tre Fontane" m. 1,870: great construction of two floors on concrete. Owner is the Associazione Nazionale Alpini (ANA) of Marostica (Vicenza). One its part always is opened and works like bivouac. To flat earth wide kitchen with fireplace, table, chairs and pottery. Onto the advanced plan they are available two mattresses (without covered). Here the place is large; so if you have mattresses and sleeping bag many people can be recoverd at night.
• Bivouac "Bivio Italia" m. 1,987: is a small building in concrete situated at the "Bivio Italia", an ancient WWI crossroad that is today important because here ends the path SAT 830 and begins the path SAT 835 to Cima Dodici. Always open but without water, neither sleeping places worthy of this name, neither others comfort: only for emergency! But during winter and with snow on the land it can be an useful point of reference to the maps because always visible.
• Bivouac "Baito Cuvolin" m. 2,020: small building in concrete with the same aspect and "comfort" of the Bivio Italia bivouac. Only for emergency. But during winter and with snow on the land it can be an useful point of reference to the maps because always visible.
• Bivouac "Busa delle Dodese" m. 2,050 (dedicated to Ruggero Lenzi): is situated between Cima Undici and Cima Dodici, suggested for spend the night because it is an always open and comfortable structure complete of six sleeping places with mattresses and covered; it has also an first aid box, a table and a fireplace. But no water, made exception for the rain that comes collection in a plastic drum.
• Bivouac "Baito Ortigara-Caldiera" (no image for it) m. 1,937: is situated at north of the Passo di Val Caldiera pass along the path SAT 840, enough far away from the zone of our interest but useful for who want to come down in Valsugana valley.
