From the Val Pusteria turn off at Sesto towards the Val Campo di Dentro. Early starters (before 9am) can drive all the way to the "Antoniusstein" car park. Continue on foot towards the Rifugio Tre Scarperi. Immediately before the refuge take the route to the Rocca dei Baranci. This steep footpath takes you through larches to a scree-covered area becoming steeper as you go up. The ascent is strenuous. At the end of this section you can glimpse the cross on the summit glimmering in the sunshine. The last 300 metres are partly on scree and partly on rocky terrain and an easy climb will take you to the summit. Return via the same route.
Bear in mind that the steep footpath is not marked, the upper section is very steep and it is easy to loose the path among the debris. This route requires mountaineering and orienteering skills, a head for heights, focus, and a good level of fitness.
The road to the Val Campo di Dentro remains closed during high season from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. There is a shuttle between the bus station on the main road and the Rifugio Tre Scarperi.
