We are reached Passo del Cason di Lanza (1552m) through Val Pontebbana. Aproximatly 18 kilometer narrow and on some places steep road. Here try to find sign for path 442a. Look round the abandoned barracks (cassera) and then go trough pine and fir wood.

Route Description

On the marshiness meadow Cjadin di Lance on crossroads we directed right to the Forca di Lanza. The left path going up on Zuc della Guardia and descent over short ferrata Via di Guerra. If you have intention to climb up then i wil prefer direction of slope over Via di Guerra and descent over light path to the basin Cjadin di Lance - but about this on next tour. On saddle Forca di Lanza (1831m) turn to the right over meadov. We are going up to the mulatiera which crossig south slope of Monte Zremula.
