An amazing itinerary with the Brenta Dolomites rising majestically across the valley. This outing takes you through the granite heart of the Adamello-Presanella group, a rocky landscape featuring lovely streams and stunning waterfalls. This is a steep, highly enjoyable climb, and the view of the Brenta Dolomites and the spires around Val Nambrone make all the effort well worth it.

Author’s recommendation

Pay attention to where you step. This is a great spot for porcini mushrooms!
