At the extreme southern end of the large car park (1525m) follow the path 564 till you reach approximately 1735m altitude and instead of going up col Alleghe, head south as far as Casera di Pioda. Below the north face of the Torrioni delle Ziolere the path takes you across the Valle de le Ziolere (valley) all the way to the Sonino al Coldai (2132m) hut. After a short ascent to the Coldai saddle (2191m), follow the Alta Via delle Dolomiti route leading you directly to Lake Coldai (2143m). From here, a new path gains about 60m to the Col Negro saddle (2203m). As you walk along the Alta Via, you will surely notice the incredible size of the Civetta’s face, rising over a thousand meters. Once you are on the highland of Val Civetta you can either choose to go directly to the Col Reàn saddle (2107m) or opt for a longer, but more interesting route stopping by the Tissi hut (2260m) for a short break. Leave the Tissi hut and get back on the Alta Via delle Dolomiti leading you to Sella di Pelsa (1954m) and the M. Vazzoler hut (1714m).
