  • I would recommend getting the cable lift Colverde, to avoid the first stroke on carriageway. The gap between the arrival station of the cabin lift and pitch of the rosette is about 600 meters. From the exit of the station of the cabin lift Colverde take the path leading to the aforementioned 701 step. The last stretch of the trail takes place along a rocky slope exposed, but there are parapets and wire ropes. You reach the Rifugio Pedrotti and take the path marked by stone and 709, omit the signposting. The itinerary takes in weak latch, only a short passage on inclined rock and smooth plates requires attention to the light exposure. You reach, then, over the Fradusta glacier, overlooking the glacier. I couldn't reach the top Fradusta glacier because the weather began to worsen. The route is simple with good weather, but can create serious problems of orientation in fog and bad weather.

  • To get to the glacier you must first take the cable lift Colverde and then the Rosetta cable car (return €24 per person) which takes you up to 2700 meters. From there you reach before the rifugio Rosetta and then walks towards the glacier. The path to follow (the signs are everywhere) is 709 and after about three hours in a way not easy you get to Step Fradusta glacier at the foot of the glacier. Bring everything you need (water, sunscreen, food etc.) because it left the shelter there is a lunar landscape. Bring in tow also dress appropriately because the weather changes with an impressive rate. We are left with a Sun that was splitting the stones and returned at the end of the excursion with a small snowstorm ... and it was on 25 July! From step Fradusta glacier you can choose to go back and retrace the trail or take the 709 708. Attention to 708 that albeit shorter is even more challenging! There is a stretch that crosses a ridge where you must cling to the rocks for the next step! Calculated time, write down the cable car travels otherwise you risk to remain at high altitude! That being said ... good walk!

  • Very distinctive and challenging path around on the rock. The glacier disappoints a bit because, unfortunately, the lack of consistency. Beautiful pond at his feet
