Along the path n. 301 you can climb on a non-pleasant and rocky path steeply into the dense forest while crossing the road again and again. At the hairpin curve on 1450 m you turn right onto the path that leads to the alp Spora Alm. Behind the rock formation of the Sega Grande mountain you eventually reach the chilly clearing called Fontana Fredda (1630 m) and the mountain pass 301/302.
You continue on the paths 302 and 338 to the north and into the wild valley Cavai, walking uphill to the Sella del Montoz (2327 m). You turn left (west) to follow the red signs which, via some ups and downs, will lead you to the base of a steep grassy canal that you climb again.
After some rocky parts you will get to touch the crest, connected with the foothills to the north-east of the peak itself. Following the crest you will eventually reach the gravel near the foot of the peak you want to climb. This is where you meet the peak of the Cima di Santa Maria, a lonely and remote mountain that offers a great view over the Brenta Dolomites and many more peaks and valleys. Back to the Sella del Montoz you follow the signs along the rocks to the Croz del Re and walk to the south. In the midst of grass and gravel you will reach a canal of debris via which you can get to the terrace located above. Keep walking south to get to the junction below the northern crest of the peak and turn right to walk along a short but exposed passage that brings you to some easier rocks.
From the side of the valley Goslada you will climb the last difficult part to reach the peak of the Croz del Re (2505 m) with the small Madonna, again an excellent view-point of the peaks in the Campa, the Monte Corona, the Monte Bedole and the Andalo. To get back to Pegorar you need to follow the entire route you have just walked.
