Val Dorè - San Lorenzo in Banale

The Doré and San Lorenzo valleys offer a route to the Pedrotti Refuge that was followed by the “Sborzi”, the nickname of the family of workers who helped to built the Tosa Refuge. The valley runs from the south to the north, starting from the Prada meadows. Path 345 begins from the Alpenrose Refuge and climbs up a mule-track as far as the La Rì meadows; it then cuts diagonally across the Coste del Cor and goes in a north-easterly direction towards the Crona Saltere peak. Here it turns to the left (northwards) and begins the climb up the Doré Valley. To the west tower the rock faces of the Dos Arnal and Cima di Ghez peaks, while the slopes of the Cima Soran and Rossati (or “reddened” from the presence of red rock) peaks bound the valley to the east. After crossing the Rossati Pass (2,442 m.), the path begins the descent along the San Lorenzo Valley until, at about 1,980 metres, it goes around the eastern flank of the Piccolo Dos di Dalum peak.

 Those who are interested in an alternative route to path 345 or who would like to aim for Molveno along the Ceda Valley can, with some care, cross the valley and take path 326 near the ruins of the Malga Ceda Alta. On the other hand, path 345 turns to the west to climb back up the Noghera Valley as far as the Forcolotta di Noghera pass (2,423 m.) where it meets path 320 (the Palmieri path) which links the Agostini and Pedrotti refuges. Follow path 320 to the east as far as the Pozza Tramontana hollow where the path meets path 326 which was already mentioned above. From here two branches of the Palmieri path (low and high, the latter having fixed rope supports at certain points) go northwards following the Pozza Tramontana (a deep hollow between the Monte Daino, Cima di Ceda and Cima Garbari peaks). Near the south-west flank of the Cima Brenta Bassa peak path 320 joins path 358 (the Brentari path) which goes to the east and leads to the Pedrotti Refuge in a short time.
