An epic crossing in a world of stone


Day 1 – From the rifugio Pederü to Alpe di Pices Fanes (Kleinfanes Almen)

From Longega in the lower Val Badia we will walk along the Valley of Mareo-Marebbe, passing the village of San Vigilio and all the way to the car park in Pederü (1,545 m). You can reach the Alpe di Pices Fanes either on foot (2,040 m approx, 2 hours) or by jeep with the option of an overnight stay at the Rifugi Ütia de Fanes and Ütia de Lavarela.

Day 2 – From Alpe di Pices Fanes (Kleinfanes Almen) to the summit of Piz de Lavarela and descent

Route 12 along the plateau takes you to the col of Medèsc (2,533 m, 1.5 to 2 hours). Following the directions to «Lavarela» and then the red marks, a zigzag path will take you to a steep and rocky ridge. This is reached after a grade 1 climb. The route continues to the right along the sheer rock faces of the steep north-east side leading to the base of a chimney-shaped crack. After a grade 1 climb you will reach the col of the final ridge, and followed by an easy climb to the main summit (3,055 m; 2 hours from the col of Medesc). An alternative descent begins from the last col and runs along the ridge to the gorge between the summit and the foresummit (3,000 m; from here to the foresummit, 3,034 m, crossing a 2-metre gap of exposed rock). A steep descent on scree takes you to the col on the ridge (2,885 m). Continuing down to the left takes you to Busc da Stlü, and eventually a flat path (11) which takes you to the Gran Fanes mountain hut (2,104 m, with refreshments; 1.5 to 2 hours from the summit). Heading north passing the Limo Lake and Pass (2,170 m) leads to the Rifugio Pices Fanes and the Rifugio Pederü.
