Lagorai : South western side
At the end of Mocheni Valley, between the Palù del Fersina's summits, a ridge grows out : this is the Mount Rujoch 2415m. It belongs to a long ridge beginning at Redebus Pass and is made by Schliwerlai Spitz summit (2432m.), Rujoch summit (2415m.) Uomo Vecchio Summit or Oltenmon (2233m.) the limit of this ridge is Polpen Pass or Jochl.Climbing these mountains is a bit hard but when you are on their summits you can enjoy the beautiful surrounding view: Brenta group, Cevedale, Presanella, Valle dei Mocheni mountains, Mount Croce.
You can reach it from Piné tableland or from Mocheni Valley through the Redebus Pass.
GeologyHere you must walk on Lagorai Porphiry ... that's on metamorphic rocks, fillades, grey coloured rocks with bright silver appearence.Rujoch is a fine example of cirque ... still in 17 century here were perpetual snows (small glacial era 1550-1850) and in Pinè valley one can find morainic deposits.Near Malga Stramaiolo a "Tridentinosaurus antiquus" footprint has been found : it was a 25 cm long reptile with a long thin neck (maybe a grand parent of mine :)))
