There are many route options today - please see you guidebook and info pack and guidebook for details.  The route outlined here is just one of the suggested routes.   

This route takes you beneath the Tofana des Rozes and on the narrow pass traversing the slopes of the Tofana des Rozes to arrive at Rifugio Dibona (an ideal lunch stop, 2037 m). From Rifugio Dibona you can continue to Rifugio Pomedes where you take a chairlift to Rifugio Duca d’Aosta, then a further chairlift to Rist. Pietofana. From Rist. Pietofana follow the path down to Rif. Col Druse, which has a funicular down to Cortina.

***This mapped route assumes you take the chairlifts - listed above.***
