Ascent Trip Report

My buddies Mattia and Emmanuel were having a 4-days via-ferrata trek into the Catinaccio, and I decided to join them for a non-ferrata 1-day climb, to be decided between Cima del Larsec, Cima di Lausa and Cima Scalieret depending on time and will.

Meeting point was Passo d'Antermoia at 11.30 am so I left Brescia at 5 am, arrived in Pera di Fassa at 7.40 and waited until 8.15 for the shuttle bus to arrive. I was at Rifugio Gardeccia trailhead by 8.40. I was a bit worried about timing, I read 2h were necessary to reach Passo Principe and another 40' to reach Passo Antermoia, but these indications were wrong: it took me only 1h30' to reach Passo Principe, stopping frequently along the way for photos, for a drink at Rifugio Preuss and a chitchat with the lady at the bar. I arrived at Passo Antermoia at 11 am, and waited for Mattia and Emmanuel coming out the Catinaccio d'Antermoia via ferrata, until 12.15.

Since it was late we decided to go for Cima del Larsec, the closest of our three possibilities. We were at the summit by 1 pm, and back at Passo Antermoia by 1.20 pm. We then went together towards Rifugio Antermoia through the Vallon d'Antermoia, still full of snow. Reached the beautiful lake and the Rifugio at 2.20pm, where we had lunch (eggs, speck and potatoes).

At 3 pm we split, Mattia and Emmanuel going towards Passo delle Scalette and then Rifugio Gardeccia, while I headed back to Pera through Passo Dona, Val di Dona and Val Udai. Weather was getting worse so I sped up, but I was caught by rain between elevations 1900 and 1600. I arrived at the car by 6 pm.
