You will reach a new construction and a fork. Path no. 623, to the right, leads to Pas de Lujia, while path no. 625 crosses the stream which comes down from the pass. You will come to the Malga Colvere. Keep going along the peaceful forest road, without taking the fork for Cajerin and Gronton (path no. 634; 1 hour and 2 hrs respectively).

Leave Fontanazzo on Strèda de l’Albolina and cross the river La Veisc (Avisio). Turn left and then immediately right onto path no. 645, which leads directly into the forest. The climb begins and you will pass an iron cross. There is a succession of steep bends and after an hour of climbing you will come to the meadow at Duì (1.767 m; 1 hour) where there are a few wooden huts. The path is now flat and leads to the Ruf de Grepa. Then there is another steep section of path which winds up through the trees.

Canazei - Val de Mortic (or de Antermont valley) - Pian de Frataces - Pian de Schiavaneis

Find the church of Saint Florian and the square of the same name in the old centre of Canazei. Take Strèda dò ruf de Antermont, and go past the old sawmill. Then cross the Ruf de Antermont or Ruf de Cianacei by way of a bridge to the left. The path follows the stream. You will join the forest road Pian Pozates and after this the gradient lessens. There is a clearing with a view of the entire Sella mountain group: the Piz Ciavazes on the left, the Sas Pordoi on the right. You keep following the ski-run until you get to the edge of the forest where there is a bench and a cross.

Alba di Canazei - Val de Contrin (Contrin valley) - Contrin refuge

The first part of the climb is fairly steep, as far as the Baita Locia Contrin (1.736 m). After this it becomes flatter as you walk through a sparse wood and then the meadows of the upper valley. There are magnificent peaks all around: the Colac to the right, the Vernel and the Marmolada to the left, the Cime di Ombretta (Ombretta peaks) to the east. Cross the Ruf de Contrin stream and then climb up towards the Malga Cianci (refreshment point) and then go through the larch trees to the Contrin refuge (2.016 m; 2 hours).
