As you come out into the first clearing, you can see Malga Bocche (closed in winter) on the left, perched on a ridge. Continuing the ascent, the panorama of numerous Dolomite peaks begins to open up.

Destination

Bocche Peak

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent: from the bridge follow the trail winding up to Malga Juribrutto (1912 m). Ignor the bridge and head up the sparse woodland northwards for a few hundred meters. Then turn left and after a long ascending traverse you reach open terrain. To get out of the forest quicker, take short cuts between rocky terrain and large  trees.

 

Continue to the top on flat stretches interrupted by steeper slopes, always following the broad ridge up  to the right. Some steeper sections or rocky ledges are bypassed left, then always return near the ridge. The final stretch is flat and leads to the small summit cross.

Below the summit, at about 2700 m, you find a small shelter for a rest.

 

Descent: by the same route
