Overview

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

In August the Hut is normally very crowded with hikers

Camping

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 :)
