During this first leg of the route you will visit one of the most beautiful places of the Dolomites: the north-west side of Mount Civetta.
This long, demanding leg winds through desolate areas without any particular difficulties. The only stretch which requires more attention is on Forcella di CrepaBassa (2.320), with some exposed passages and a small gully with a 1st degree passage downhill.
This leg is easy and almost all downhill. It is part of High Route n.1 of the Dolomites in the stretch Coldai-Vazzoler-Carestiato, in the opposite direction.
