From Passo Gardena
Climbed from Passo Gardena, through Val Setus.
a fine day: first ferrata Tridentina, then the normal route "from backside" to the summit. then we proceeded to Rifugio Boé hut and took descent from there through Val de Mesdi. At the end we were lucky to miss a thunderstorm closely.
I went yet twice Ferrata Tridentina, in 2005 very nice, not so much people, seccond time in 5.9.2006 was ferrata full of people.
Despite an early start, the route was crowded with queues waiting at every step, although none are particularly difficult. Eventually, frustrated by the very slow progress of inexperienced and careless scramblers ahead, and rain of dislodged rocks, left the protected route to scramble independently a short distance away, which was much safer, quicker and more interesting. It's a great route, but spoiled by the crowds.
First made it to the top of Torre Exner, some scrambling is required there (the via ferrata passes below this peak). Then continued towards Cima Pisciadu. Snow patches on the way up. Descended through Val Setus, very beautiful!
In summer 2003, a great route, we had the best weather.
Its a very favourite tour and so there are many people on the way.
Beware of falling rocks
Slept on the parking place on Passo Gardenna road, did the Brigata Tridentina ferrata to the Pisciadu hut and from there to the top. We descended through Val Setus.
A short, nice walk up to the summit on a day with instable weather.
