Access to starting point:
Access from Gorenjska: From Rateče or Predel we cross the border to Trbiž / Tarvisio and then we continue on highway in direction of Videm / Udine to exit Tolmezzo. From Tolmezzo we follow the road in direction of village Ampezzo and mountain pass Passo Mauria. Road then descends and it brings us to a crossroad, where we continue left (possible also right) in direction of Cortina d'Ampezzo. On all next crossroads we follow the signs for Cortina d'Ampezzo.
In Cortina d'Ampezzo then we follow the signs for Alpine mountain pass Passo di Falzarego. This ascending road we then follow to mentioned mountain pass, after that we continue right towards the mountain pass Passo Valparola. From the mountain pass we then descend towards the valley Val Badia. When lower the road flattens on the right we will notice a larger parking lot, a restaurant and a camp. We continue few 100 meters more on the main road after that right behind the bridge, which crosses the stream Rü Sciare we turn right towards the restaurant Capanna Alpina. Mentioned road we then follow to its end where we park on a large parking lot before the mentioned restaurant. In the summer months the parking lot is payable. The price for one day of parking is 5€ (July 2019).
From Primorska: We drive on highway towards Venice / Benetke / Venezia. At town Portogruaro we leave the highway towards Venice and continue right on highway towards Pordenone. At the next highway junction near Conegliano we continue right towards Belluno. Near Belluno highway ends and at next crossroads we continue in direction of Cortina d'Ampezzo. Further we follow the description above.
Path description:
From the parking lot we continue past the restaurant Capanna Alpina on a macadam road, which is closed for traffic. Road then quickly brings us to a plain where there is a crossing. To the right leads path 20 towards the mountain hut Ütia Scotoni, and we go left on path 11 and follow the signs for Col de Locia and Fanes.
From the crossing we for some time walk on a gentle macadam path, which meanwhile over a bridge crosses a stream. Further the path becomes a little narrower and brings us into dwarf pines and then also into thin forest. Here the path starts also ascending a little steeper. A little higher path turns to the left and it is then ascending by the fence on a little steeper slope. From the path here beautiful views are opening up towards west where there is clearly visible mountain group Sella. Path then crosses a grazing fence and it brings us on a less steep terrain by indistinct summit Col de Locia, which is situated by the path on our left side. On the summit there are also some benches.
Path here turns slightly to the right and at first it slightly descends and then crosses a smaller stream. Further we walk through a gentle and wide valley, which mostly runs towards the north. For some time path still runs by dwarf pines and later it brings us on an ample grassy slopes. Such path then brings us to a marked crossing where the path branches off to the right towards the lake Lech de Legacio and forward towards the mountain hut Lagazuoi.
At the crossing we still continue straight on ample meadows on which in the summer months also a livestock is grazing. Path again starts slightly descending and with wonderful views it brings us to another marked crossing.
This time path branches off to the left towards the peaks Conturines and Lavarela. We still continue on the wide path all the way to mountain pasture Malga Gran Fanes where there is a marked crossing.
Straight there is only few minutes of walking to the hut Ütia de Gran Fanes, which we already see in front of us. At the crossing we go right on path number 17 or Walk of Peace (Fridensweg / Via della pace). Path from the crossing at first runs on a grassy slope and then it brings us into a lane very thin larch and pine forest. Path is further marked with number 17 and with signs VB and FR, which marks peaks Vallon Bianco and Furcia Rossa. Path is still slightly ascending and runs on old military mule track towards southeast. Path slowly turns a little more to the left and a view starting to open up also towards the east on the valley Valle di Fanes. Mule track here brings us on more rocky terrain on which we soon reach the crossing.
To the right leads path 17 towards Monte Castello or bivouac Bivacco della Pace, and we continue left on path towards the peaks Furcia Rossa and Vallon Bianco. From the crossing path then for quite some time crosses slopes a little more towards the east and it brings us to a little steeper slopes. Next follows an ascent mostly in zig zags on a steep slope and path brings us to the next crossing.
This time we go right towards secured climbing path, which leads towards the summit Furcia Rossa III (marked with caption Ferrata – Klettersteig, Furcia Rossa). And straight leads path towards the summit Vallon Bianco and Furcia Rossa II). From the crossing we then cross a slope towards southwest and path brings us on a wide ledge below the steep mountain walls. Path then turns to the left and still runs by the edge of the wall and starts also ascending a little. Higher then path turns a little to the right and it brings us to the beginning of the secured path.
In front of the entry into secured part of the path we equip ourselves with a helmet and self belay set. At the beginning of secured path at first we descend a little by the steel cable, and then follows even steeper descent with a help of few ladders. After the descent path becomes again less demanding and starts ascending towards the slopes of peak Furcia Rossa III. Here we in ascent cross valley on eastern side of the mentioned summit and then follows a little steeper ascent on a crumbly slope where the path is ruined a little. In an early summer here can still be a snow field. Such path then brings us to a wall where there is continuation of the secured path. Path here is ascending by the steel cable and we again get help from few ladders. Higher the path then turns to the right and on occasionally a little exposed slope brings us to the most difficult part of the path. Here we vertically ascend with a help of numerous stemples, and on a shorter part the mountain wall is even slightly overhanging. Above the stemples we are for some time ascending with a help of steel cables, after that path brings us on less demanding slopes on the northern side of the peak Furcia Rossa III. Here we at first cross a slope towards west and path brings us to a crossing.
We continue left towards already mentioned summit and right leads secured path towards the summit Monte Castello and bivouac Bivacco della Pace. From the crossing then follows a shorter ascent by a panoramic ridge and path soon brings us to the top on which we will notice a smaller cross and interesting bench.
We can descend by continuing on the mentioned secured path and then we return on path number 17 back towards the mountain pasture Malga Gran Fanes. Descent is possible also on the ascent route.
