The pass Sella Nevea and then over the skiing slope to the Rif. Gilberti or in Summer over the route number 635.

Route Description

From the Rif. Gilberti you start hiking on the route number 632 to the pass Sella Bela pec (2005m) and then you continue ascending over the route number 632 to the crossing. The route number 632 leads right to the bivouac Marussich but you turn left and continue to the glacier below the north face of Kanin. When you come on the glacier you might need ice axe and crampons. After crossing the glacier you start climbing in steep face with the help of iron ropes and wedges. Some easy places you have to climb without security.

Soon you come on the ridge and to the top of Visoki Kanin you have around 15 minutes walking on the east ridge of it.

You can descend by the sam route or you take a long circle over the whole east ridge of Kanin to the Prestreljnik (2498m) and then you descend over the pass Prevala back to Sella Nevea.

Essential Gear

Good hiking shoes, helmet and all equipment for ferratas. You may also need an ice axe and crampons for the glacier.
