Today you’ll be walking via the Forcella del Moschesin (1950m) and up the rocky western slopes of the Cima de Zita. From Rif. Passo Duran follow the route to Rif. Pramparet, then enter the Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunesi, the wildest of the national parks on the trail and with a good chance of spotting deer and marmots. Then follow route 514; in one or two places the gradient particularly steep. Pay particular attention to the way-marking as you reach a rocky area that leads to a ridge path on the day’s highest pass at 2451 m. The ridge path requires some preparation – both physical and mental – as it feels somewhat exposed. The sense of achievement of having reached the last high pass on the Alta Via 1 is fantastic! Enjoy glimpses of the Venetian plain and watch out for chamois and marmots as you descend sharply to Rifugio Pian de Fontana (1632 m).

The ridge above Rif Pramperet is exposed and does require some scrambling, however it isn’t as daunting as the description made me fear. In many ways it takes no more care or “ physical and mental preparation “ than several other segments of the Alta Via 1 South. If you made it this far, you will be good to go on this segment 😊
