Croz del Rifugio from Pozza...
Croz del Rifugio is the first summit of the little Monte Daino subgroup and the only (I think) climbed.
It is a smart thin rocky ridge of very fine rock with 3 different summits : the NW one is the main

Getting There

Starting point for all routes is the Rifugio Pedrotti (2491 m)
I think that nobody will start from the valley just to climb this mountain but, due to its nearness to Rifugio Pedrotti e Tosa it gives possibilities to amuse when spending time there (a rest day, a bad weather day, after Brenta Bassa or Cima Margherita or Brenta Alta climb ecc.)

You can get it starting from Madonna di Campiglio (1515 m), by car or taxi-service to Rifugio Valsinella (1513 m).
on foot : path 317 - to Rif. Casinei, then path 318 : 2 h walk from Vallesinella you get the Rif.Brentei and, in 1 more hour, along the path to the Bocca di Brenta you can get the Rif.Pedrotti

When To Climb

Best month for climbing are from July to September
In August the Hut is normally very crowded with hikers


if you use a small tent near Rif.Pedrotti (meadows are little but there is a lot of space on the carsic esplanade west of Refuge) you'll get no problems at all :)
