A long hike from Plöckenpass to Rifugimento Marinelli, then to Monte Coglians. On the way returning to Rifugimento Marinelli I bagged also Pic Chiadin. From Rif. Marinelli I returned to Plöckenpass on an alternative trail. 19 km distance, 1750 m elevation gain.
Together with Kerepesi Péter we started from Collina and on the north side of Monte Coglians/Hohe Warte we went up on Via Ferrata "Weg der 26er". At the begining several exposed passages on a vertical rocky edge / wall. From the top of the mountain you'll enjoy an amazing view!
My wife and I climbed Hohe Warte on a cloudy day. On Valentin Törl we met a German guy, who didn't want to go up alone. After we decided to go, he joined us. The ascent was a beautiful one, we are determined to repeat it on a beautiful day. After reaching the summit our German friend had to take a dose of sugar - he was suffering of diabetes. Only then we understood why he didn't dare to go up alone. After that we descended on a southern side and around to Wolayer See, where mountain bikes were waiting for us. For an old lady and gentleman it was a crazy drive down to the Wolayer Tal!
With my friends Emanuele, Paolino, Lorenza and Eleonora through "Spinelli path" and then for a long part of gravel and a last part of rocks. One of my first Alpin climbing: that emotion when I have reached the peak! We have come back through refuge Marinelli and then late in the night to our village "Cima Sappada" (from refuge Tolazzi by car).
