Distinctive and sophisticated mountain with a beautiful view. From Braies lake towards the eastern shore, turn left on a forestry road to a trail which branches off on adventurous exposed walls by the “Dodici Apostoli/Zwölf Apostel” notch leads. From there it goes on to “Lavina Bianca/Weißlahn”. Curvy and platy rocks to get to the ridge and after a somewhat exposed traverse put on the final path to the summit. Walking time: 3,5 hours Sign-post: no 58 Challenge: very demanding, vertigo and slip resistance required!
