Description

A 3 days hike in the hearth od Dolomites.

We parked at the bottom of the Col Raiser cableway, in Val Gardena.

We took the cableway, and as we arrived on the top, we hiked to Seceda and Forcella Pana.

From Forcella Pana we went down more or less 300 mt in altitude.

During the afternoon and the evening we walked along the north ridge of the Odle moutains (direction Rifugio Genova).

The second day we started from rifugio Genova, our aim was to go to Rifugio Puez.

This was a very long day and we found some unexpected condictions.

Be careful because after Forcella della Roa, there's a part of the trail which requires harness and via ferrata kit.

It's not a proper via ferrata, but I recommend prudent behavior: there are several exposed passages and this path is not marked on the map.

After Rifugio Puez you can reach Lech de Crespeina after 2 hours walking.

From Forcella de Crespeina you can easily reach Passo Gardena to take a bus and reach the car
