Crossing the Brenta Dolomites, Trentino: from Groste Pass to lake Tovel via Bocca Tuckett

This is an alternative but more tiring and difficult itinerary to the classic 301-314 route. From the Grostè Pass you come to the Tuckett Refuge without any difficulty. Then you climb up the Tuckett snowfield as far as the Bocca del Tuckett pass at 2,648 metres, where the Via delle Bocchette Alte way and the Alfredo Benini route with fixed rope supports meet.
 After descending the eastern slope of the Bocca del Tuckett you begin to go down the fascinating and solitary Perse Valley. At the Busa dell’Acqua hollow, follow path 314 uphill to the Bocca Vallazza pass at 2,453 metres. The path now crosses the two Turrion peaks and then meets path no. 301. Still following no. 314 you finally begin the long descent of the Santa Maria Flavona Valley down to the lake.
