Si può raggiungere dal Passo Sella o prendendo la cabinovia Ciampinoi da Selva e facendo una piacevole escursione.

Bellissimo percorso, in alcuni punti non facile ma fattibile e adatto a tutti, vi troverete in un paesaggio davvero stupendo ai piedi del Sassolungo con vista mozzafiato sul gruppo del Sella e sul ghiacciaio della Marmolada.
