Our destination today is the Sasso delle Nove/Sass dles Nö (2,968 m asl), considered the most beautiful panoramic mountain above the Alpe di Fanes mountain pasture in the Fanes-Senes-Braies nature park. We start at the Rif. Pederoa on a wide forested trail towards the Rof. Fanes. In zigzag we overcome the first section, before we reach the high-Alpine plateau of the Fanes. After about 1.5 hours we get to the turnoff to the Ücia Fanes and Rif. Lavarella.
At this point we start ascending in the open country, along the slopes on the right, towards the Plan de Salines at the foot of the Sasso delle Nove. We traverse the rocky promontory at its foot and walk up the averagely steep eastern slopes. The higher we get, the more impressive the panorama gets. Our destination is visible, but it is not as near as it seems.
Before a steep southern slope needs to be overcome (avalanche-prone). Finally we reach the winter summit of the Sasso delle Nove (2,874 m asl). It is rarely recommendable to scale the summer peak in winter, as it requires respectively secure conditions.
