Keeping on the left you continue to go up until you arrive to the top of the hill. From here it is possible to enjoy a beautiful panorama below on the valley; it is moreover possible to admire the beautiful alpine church of Saint Dionisio.
From the top of the hill, from an altitude of 1946 m., go down northwards and, through a steep path, reach Rif. Antelao in short time.
For the return you can follow the same path.
