ONLY ATTEMPT THIS STAGE IN STABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS, IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE OF EXPOSED ROUTES AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO VERTIGO

* You can use an alternative route to avoid the very exposed sections and still get to the Boz Mountain Hut.

 

This breathtaking route suspended on narrow, grassy ledges, leads you into the wildest corner of the Vette Feltrine.
The constant panorama over Feltre’s valley will follow you through areas where the chamois have taken dominion.

You’ll be in the vicinity of the imposing bastion of Sass de Mura, the legendary, rock-climbing mountain where routes of notable grandeur have been climbed over the years.

Technical description

From Malga Erera take CAI trail 851, which climbs to the left of the Fosso di Brendol gorge until you reach the pass, Forcella dell’Omo (1983 m above sea level).

This marks the beginning of the most strenuous stretch of the entire trek. There are 2 km of constant exposure where you absolutely need to be sure-footed and have no hint of vertigo.

The trail becomes narrower and narrower to the point where the slightest mistake could be dangerous.

Be careful during high summer as the long grass get be tricky.

About halfway along this exposed section, there is a climb with fixed ropes to assist you in getting to the top of the rocks. It’s not a via ferrata, but rather a stretch of approximately 10 metres of fixed rope that you can use to secure yourself.

At the end of the very exposed section, path 851 meets path 806 which climbs up from the bottom of the valley and leads to the Casera Cimonega plateau. Emergency shelter is available 300 metres higher up at Bivacco Feltre – Walter Bodo, which can be a good overnight stop with drinking water nearby.

From Casera Cimonega, you’ll walk up in a westerly direction. The trail is marked by faint tracks on the steep slopes that lead to the grassy pass at Col dei Bech (1960 m).

Then you’ll descend along the panoramic Caserin trail, CAI number 801, to an altitude of 1750 m. At this point, you’ll begin gently climbing as far as the divide between the twin peaks of Sass de Mura, where water can usually be found.

Having passed some rocky ledges with fixed-rope sections, you’ll reach the Pass de Mura (1867 m) which punctuates the Caserin path and opens up the majestic view over the Alvìs valley and Néva basin. From here, there’s a quick descent to the Bruno Boz mountain hut.
