From the cable car take trail 614 down to Passo di Lusia, where the direct trail (623) meets. At the Passo you cross the park boundary of Parco Naturale Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino and though there is one ski lift close to Passo Lusia you leave behind all the devastation wreaked by the ski run development. The path (633) leads to the southern slopes of Cima di Lastè and Cima di Lusia but never reaches the ridge. Instead it climbs to a small Forcella from which you have perfect views towards your final destination.
Descend to Lago di Lusia Inferiore where you can find Bivacco Sandro Redolf. Here the trai to Sentiero Attrezzato del Gronton turns off northward while the Bocche ascent heads straight onward. You pass Lago di Lusia Superiore and shortly afterwards reach Forca di Bocche, where an old WW I fort (rather its remains) can be seen. Head onwards to the Cima Bocche east reach through and across which an old WW I supply trail runs. You come across multiple WW I positions before you reach the summit. On top you find the obvious cross as well as a maze of trenches also dating back to WW I.
