A narrow line just below the Pala di San Martino.

The access to this line is - as many of the touring lines in the San Martino di Castrozza area - through the Rosetta Hut. To get here, a chairlift and the Rosetta cableway will make the climb a matter of 15 minutes only. When at the top station of the cableway it’s just about putting your skins on your skis, adjust your poles a bit longer, switch your boots into touring mode and then start traversing the plateau heading south-west. The entrance of the valley is not far, but orientating on this plateau is not always easy: the snow dunes don’t allow you having a clear sight around - following the GPX track will be really helpful here.
Once at the top, it’s a fun ride down the valley until bumping into a small hut - which is normally closed in winter times. From here there a second short climb where skins are needed again before then entering a last line which - through a couloir - leads all the way down to the valley. The way out, depending to the current season, might require some walking at the bottom due to lack of snow: this won’t make the tour less exciting - guaranteed!
Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
