Mountain Trail to the highest refuge of the ridge of Sasso Nero

Directions


From Brunico along the Valle di Tures and Aurina to the village of San Giovanni – Sankt Johann, to reach the mountain hut of Stàllila (1,472 m; restaurant and parking). Following the directions to «Schwarzensteinhütte» takes you to the mountain huts of Gschöllberg and Daimeralm (1,862 m). A challenging climb (signposted «Kamin») on rock and scree is facilitated by the use of fixed ropes, then on the via ferrata with ropes and iron rungs and vertical stemples. Another route (signposted «Gletscherweg») is less exposed but more difficult. It starts on boulders or snow and continues with sections on rocks equipped with safety cables. The steep ascent continues relatively easily up to the Rifugio Schwarzenstein- Vittorio Veneto (2,922m, at least 4 hours from the car park; overnight stay recommended). We climb up through broken rocks and snow to the summit ridge (Felsköpfl, 3,235 m) and then across the glacier preferably with all team members roped-up to reach the base of the summit and leading up to the cross (3,368 m; 1:30 hour) along the east rocky ridge of boulders. Return via the same route.

    Nun mal langsam: DieseTour wird sich ?ndern: Der "Kamin" wird wahrscheinlich geschlossen, ein neuer Weg wird bereitet. In 2017 ist die neue H?tte noch nicht aufnahmebereit.

    Der Klettersteig zur Schwarzensteinhuette durch den sogenannten Kamin ist Anfang August 2014 wegen Steinschlages noch gesperrt.
