Route Description

Cima Lastè Map - Alpago

This is a 1100m ascent starting from M.ga di Pian Grande.
Follow the road in front of M.ga di Pian Grande and when the road turn left, go straight in a small valley. You will reach a plan in front of you, go on up to a road with a bar. Follow this road in the forest (it is marked 923). In about one hour and half you will reach the Sasso della Madonna. From here you can see your summit and check the route. Go straight on in the middle of the valley and soon you will be under a 40° slope. It is short but very often you will find hard snow or ice.
