From Frara Restaurant on the Passo Gardena we use path number 666 that leads us below the northern walls of the Gruppo Sella into the rocky valley of Val Setus. We have to cross dertial deposits and wire-secured rock cliffs to reach the Pisciadùseehütte. This hut is located on the characteristic intermediate plateau of the Sella. Our path run along the eastern shore of the small Pisciadù lake and takes us across the slope of the Val-Tita basin over easy wire-secured rock cliffs. In a wide curve to the right we continue following the marker across the slope to a sign-post. Here the path runs into the main path 647, which we follow to the Boèhütte (2871m).
