Keep watch for scampering salamander as you walk through patches of scree and grass on route 434 to Forcella Ambrizzola (2277 m). Follow routes 458 then 467 to Rif Citta di Fiume - in contrast to the high alpine slopes, the AV1 follows route 472 across lush pastures and scree paths to Rifugio Passo Staulanza (1783 m). We can confirm the rumours that it serves some of the best hot chocolate in the Dolomites!

There is a short section of road walking (this is not particularly busy with traffic but please take care) until you turn off onto route 568. Follow route 561, to pass a small farm café/restaurant (Pioda) before a steep climb into the meadows. Ascend on route 556 with views to Monte Pelmo (316 8m), and climb a steep zigzag path to Rifugio Coldai (2132 m).
