from the car park continue along the road and the Neves alpine hut (Nevesalm) to reach the bridge. We go over the bridge and up the valley, keeping to the left of the stream, until we reach the foot of the Penna Sud del Mesule (Südl. Möselenock). We go up right over a series of hollows leading to the Neves Orientale glacier. We continue right on a moderately steep slope towards a basin below the peak leading to the shoulder between the Mesule Piccolo and the Mesule Grande. We go up this steep slope until we reach the foot of the eastern crest of the summit (3,440 m, we leave our skis here). We go left up along the steep crest until we reach the summit cross.
Descent: via the same route.


Alternative route to Capo Mösele, 3,389 m (Möselekopf, easy skiing route): we go straight below the Penna Sud del Mesule (Südl. Möselenock) and, after a series of downward slopes we get to a small pass on the left-hand side of Capo Mösele (Möselekopf; the last few meters on the pass are extremely steep!). We then continue on the north side of the crest; finally, by making a turn from left to right up a slope, we get to the eastern side towards the Forcella del Mesule Occidentale, 3,370 m (Westliche Mösele- scharte), and we reach the highest point on the right-hand side. Descent: via the same route.
