    Noi abbiamo fatto il percorso interamente a piedi dal parcheggio di Compaccio, quindi senza prendere la seggiovia. Dal parcheggio al rifugio Bolzano, passando dalla malga Prossliner (variante sconsigliata, visto che fa perdere quota più del necessario - vi consigliamo piuttosto di passare dalla Malga Saltner), ci abbiamo impiegato 3 ore, quasi come indicato dal cartello (3 ore e 10 minuti), ma camminando con passo estremamente sostenuto.

    Scusate, ma la durata di 5 ore è riferita alla sola andata?
