Fornohütte - Pass da Casnil Sud – Capanna da l’Albigna
Show all 6 images
This route (completed in 2017) bypasses the problem areas (unstable moraines) of the old route!
You first descend the Val Forno for 45 minutes on the hut trail to the junction at the bridge at about 2200m. The path now climbs and leads past huge rock slabs and over greened rock bands to a terrain shoulder under the eastern ridge of Piz Casnil (approx. 2630m).
One now traverses a couloir and a little later arrives at a large scree terrace. From here on, the route is the same as before: through a small valley you climb southwestwards to the pass da Casnil Sud (2941m). At the top of the pass, the view to the north face of the Cima dal Cantun becomes clear! From the pass you climb up a few more meters to the north, then the descent begins. Over boulder terrain and meadows you reach the Capanna da l'Albigna (2333m).
For those who do not want to go down on foot, the Pranzaira cable car runs from mid-June to early October from 07:30 to 16:30 h.
There are exposed places that are secured with chains
Mountain boots, poles, enough water
