Access to starting point:
First we drive to Cortina d'Ampezzo (to here possible over a border crossing Rateče or Predel to Trbiž / Tarvisio and then on a 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. Or from Primorska side, where we drive on a highway in direction of Trst / Trieste. Further, we drive on italian highway in direction of Padova, but only to highway junction, where we continue in direction of Veneto and Belluno. Near Belluno highway ends, and at next crossroads we continue in direction of Cortina d'Ampezzo and then we follow the signs for Alpine mountain pass Passo di Falzarego. This ascending road we then follow to a crossroad at altitude approximately 1400m. At the crossroad we continue left in direction of Alpine mountain pass Passo di Giau and Marmolada. We park on a large parking lot on the mentioned Alpine mountain pass.
Path description:
From the mountain pass we continue on a wide path past the mountain hut Rifugio Passo Giau. After a short ascent on a wide path we come to a crossing, where we go right on a path 443 following the signs »Rif. Nuvolau Ferrata«. The path then starts descending a little and crosses slopes below the summit Ra Gusela (2595m). Unmarked path will soon branch off ot the left, which runs towards the wall of peak Ra Gusela. We are still slightly descending towards the east after that we come to a marked crossing.
Straight leads path towards the mountain hut Cinque Torri, right downwards leads marked but poorly beaten path towards the mountain pasture Malga Giau, and we go left on path 438 towards secured path Ferrata Gusella. Path here starts ascending on a scree on eastern side of the mountain Ra Gusela and it brings us to a smaller notch. From the notch we then few meters descend after that path becomes more demanding. For less experienced it is recommended to use self belay set. First we ascend by the steel cable through a wide groove after that follows an ascent over a short ladder. Demanding part of the path is very short and we are soon on gentle slopes on the north side of the peak Ra Gusela from where a view opens up also towards the summit Nuvolau. After that path turns slightly to the left and for some time still runs on a relatively gentle slopes. And further we have to pay attention on blazes because we will soon get to unmarked crossing.
Here we leave the marked path towards the mountain hut Rifugio Nuvolau and we go left on unmarked footpath towards the summit Ra Gusela. Unmarked path then runs towards south and it is ascending towards a well visible distinct notch. Meanwhile from the right joins also transverse path from a ridge of peak Nuvolau. Path little before the notch turns slightly to the left and is then ascending diagonally on eastern side of the mountain. Higher the slope becomes a little steeper and path leads us also past abyss therefore at the ascent some caution is needed. In the last part path turns to the right and only a short ascent follows to a very panoramic summit.
