Description

Starting from The Fracch Alp, a few steps from the start of the Confin ski lift, follow the cross-country track that runs along Lake Isola until the start of the summer trail. From there you follow the general direction of the summer trail crossing the Ri de Confin at almost 1850 meters above sea level, and reaching the Passit Pass at an altitude of 2082 meters above sea level. Always following the summer path towards the Pass de la Cruseta, along the Reverz of Passit, you reach the north-west ridge where you can leave your skis at an altitude of about 2520 meters above sea level. The last stretch on the ridge is an easy climb but exposed on blocks, before reaching the little man at the summit.

The descent is feasible on the same ascent route or towards Spina / Pian San Giacomo, crossing the ridge between Piz Arbeola and Cima de la Fopela. The route continues towards Cebi, Pignela and descending on the forest road to Spina. 

Sicherheitshinweis

The slope below the Cima de la Fopela, in case you want to descend towards Spina, exceeds 30 ° of slope, so you need a careful evaluation of the slope before embarking on the descent. If the Passit Reverz does not have optimal conditions, we recommend the detour to route 409 - Passit Motto (2247 mslm).

Ausrüstung

Never underestimate the mountain. Even for the easiest tours with seal skins we strongly recommend bringing all the safety material. Shovel, probe, ARVA and possibly the backpack with flotation device should be part of the equipment of every ski mountaineer.
