The starting point is the pass Passo di Monte Croce / Plöckenpass. Here is also a big parking place where you leave your vehicle.
From the North
There are two possible roads:
* From Kitzbühel over B108 through the Felbertauern Tunnel to Lienz, then southeast to Oberdrauburg and Kötschach-Mauthen (B110), where you turn to direction Plöckenpass / Italy.
* From Salzburg along motorway A10 to Spittal. Turn west on B100 to Oberdrauburg, there south to Kötschach-Mauthen were you stay on B110 to the pass Passo di Monte Croce / Plöckenpass.
From the South (Udine)
Take Motorway A23 to the exit Camia Tolmezzo. Follow SS52 north to Tolmezzo where you turn onto SS52 bis. This leads to the pass Passo di Monte Croce / Plöckenpass.
Creta di Collinetta / Celon, 2238m seen from the south side.
From the parking place you must find the marked route 146 and you continue over it in the west direction through the forest and later over the grassy slopes. This route crosses in many switchbacks the south slopes of Creta di Collinetta / Cellon
, 2238m. Soon you come to the first crossing where you can go to the left or to the right (route 147). Both routes later join on the higher grassy slopes. If you go here to the right, you must later on the next crossing turn to the left (the right possibility goes to the start of ferrata). If you go to the left on the crossing, you must later turn to the right (the left route goes to Rif. Marinelli
, 2122m and some more mountains around).
On the airy shelves. The marked route over the south slopes of Cresta Verde.
Both possibilities join higher on the steep grassy slopes of the ridge Cresta Verde
, 2150m. You reach the ridge just below the main border ridge in many switchbacks over the steep grassy slope. Here on the crossing you turn to the right (the left route goes on Creta di Collina / Kollinspitze
, 2689m) and you cross below the south - west face to the secured section. Here you continue over the old military shelves above the airy precipice. Soon you come to the east ridge of Cellon where also come both east possibilities.
Now you have to reach the main summit over the upper south slope in many switchbacks. You will see many military bunkers. On the summit is a big cross.
You descend by the same route.
Good hiking shoes.
