The exploration of the Dolomites began here, with the first crossing of the Bocca di Brenta in 1864. And it was here that the SAT (Association of Trentino Mountaineers) built the Rifugio Tosa, and the Bremen Mountaineering Club built the Rifugio Tommaso Pedrotti at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. Both are close to the famous Brenta Group pass, and close to each other (and this is not the only case!) bearing witness to the rivalry between Italian and German mountaineers at the time. These Refuges - run by mountain guide Franco Nicolini - are perfectly placed to access the Group's main walks and climbs, including the Bocchette Centrali. Open From mid-June to late September Before leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hut Walks The Bocca di Brenta marks the start of the Bocchette Centrali (difficulty EEA), a high level via ferrata that crosses the entire dolomitic group to Passo del Grostè (taking two or more days) with exit routes down to the Alimonta, Francis Fox Tuckett and Quintino Sella refuges. From Bocca di Brenta you can also walk down to the Rifugio Maria e Alberto “Ai Brentei” (1 hour, EE). It’s a 3-hour walk to the Rifugio Val d'Ambiez Silvio Agostini on the Palmieri path (EE), and it takes 3 hours to get to the Rifugio Dodici Apostoli “Fratelli Garbari" on the challenging Brentari via ferrata and the Sentiero dell’Ideale path (difficulty EEA).
