In the rocky basin. Easy via ferrata on the famous Gruppo Sella.
From Ju de Frara-Passo Gardena (2137 m) you follow path 666, crossing grassy and stony ground heading south-east till the rocky gorge opens out on Val Setus. Then you climb zigzag on a gravel, steep screes and then rocks; you can cross the most difficult stretch with the help of the easy via ferrata (grappe and metal strings).
Once you reach the Sella large terrace, you soon arrive to the refuge and the pond (2585 m; 1h30’/2h from the pass). You’d better go back from the initial way.
The descent to Calfosch-Colfosco through Val de Mesdì, is partially equipped but it is very long and not inviting at all; the descent on the difficult via ferrata “Brigata Tridentina” is to be done only by very experienced climbers.
