Informationen zur Tour Piz de la Varela
We follow the vehicle track (sledge run) as far as the Rifugio Fanes (Ücia de Fanes, 2,060 m, 2 hours) and continue towards the Giogo di Limo (Ju de L., 2,174 m). From here we can go down to the Gran Fanes alpine hut (Ütia de Gran Fanes, 2,097 m), a descent of 80 m, then continue onto the right of the alpine hut onto a plateau, all the way to the Ju dal’Ega (2,157m). We then go up to the valley on the right, where we go past a summit. From here the path becomes less steep and the valley widens. We keep to the right and continue on easy terrain until we reach the foot of the south-eastern walls of the Piza Parom and the Piz de la Varela and, after the pass on the right (2,885 m), we reach the end of the valley. We can continue on our skis up the steep slope, and then continue without skis once we arrive at the foot of the rocks. We go straight ahead up to a summit and a small plateau. We continue ahead and, again on a steep slope, we go over a pass. From here we turn right and reach the summit cross along a short, steep ridge.
Descent: via the same route, bearing in mind the need to go back up to the Giogo di Limo.
Alternative route: from the pass below the Piz de la Varela we can go left up a moderately steep slope to the flat summit of the Piz dles dües Forceles (Zweischartenkofel, 2,929 m).
Direction: north – west – east – south – east
Difficulty for skiers: average
Difficulty for hikers: average around the summit; an ice axe would be helpful
