From the pass, reached from Sappada following itinerary n. 3, follow the path n. 315, which descends with steep hairpins south to the base of the campanile of Mimoias (a small, bold pinnacle located south of the Elbel pass), it skirts the base where it crosses the n. 202a (which goes to the Mimoias pass or the abandoned mountain casera of the same name). Here (signed) the walker instead continues left (eastwards), slightly uphill, then continuing to navigate in the same direction as far as the first big shoulder with larch and fir (there is large boulder with route indications and an excellent viewpoint on the pass and the Creta Mimoias) then descending a short but steep slope to the south to a second, grassy, shoulder. It continues to fall gently amidst dense stands of mugo pine, crossing a pebbly outcrop, a stand of spruce, other patches of mugo, and isolated larches. The route proceeds, heading south-east, through thick scrub, along the entire southern side of the Creton di Clap Piccolo, skirting the grassy clearing where you can see the ruins of the casera of the same name. Here the walker begins along path n. 201 that enters from the Pian di Casa (val Pesarina) and which continues mainly at altitude through large wooded expanses. A little further on, here and there, the path becomes a bit exposed, and requiring care, both for its slippery nature and where reinforcement trunks holding it in position have been lost. It now begins to climb up towards the canyon of the Rio Pradibosco, beyond which the walker traverses further east right up to a short but steep ridge that is overcome by a series of quite steep turns. Having reached the summit, the refuge is very close by.
Along the same itinerary. Very fit and experienced walkers can take routes ns. 10 + 11 or ns. 10 + n. 12.
