Crossing the Brenta Dolomites, Trentino: from Molveno to the Grostè Pass

Start from the top station of the cable car that goes from Molveno up to the Altopiano di Pradel tableland (open every day from the last week in May to the end of September and at weekends from the beginning of May and in the first three weeks of October (check times and dates by phoning 0461-586981 / 586924). 
An alternative access route to the Croz Altissimo Refuge (1,430 m.) is the Seghe Valley, starting from Molveno near the Via Dolomiti hairpin bend, on path no. 322 (time from Molveno to the Croz Altissimo Refuge: 1½ hours). Starting from Pradel, on the other hand, you follow itinerary 340 up to the Croz Altissimo Refuge  which has the odd exposed stretch but you are protected by a metal barrier (a rope hand-rail). The route cuts across the western rock face of the Croz Altissimo peak and offers excellent views over the Sfulmini amphitheatre and over the peaks that bound the Perse Valley. 
At the refuge you turn right and climb the old river bed following path no. 322. After about half an hour you come to the fork with path no. 344 which heads for the Clamer Pass. Carry on along path no. 322 as far as the Busa dell’Acqua hollow (1,920 m.) via the canyon that comes down from the west (river) or via the rock peak with the help of the fixed rope supports. 
At the Busa dell’Acqua hollow turn slightly to the right and take path no. 314 which leads to the Bocca Vallazza pass (2,453 m., a little over 3 hours from the Croz Altissimo Refuge). Carry on between the Turrion Basso and Turrion Alto to the fork with path no. 301 which comes from the Malga Spora. Continuing along path no. 301 you soon pass Le Crosette and climb up the stone steps of the Grostè Pass, from where you can get to Madonna di Campiglio either by cable car (last trip at …) or on foot via the Graffer Refuge.
