The route is set out in the direction described here and not vice versa as it is an excellent and easy way down to Sappada for those coming from the Siera pass, whilst it is monotonous and a bit uncomfortable if used for an ascent. It offers interesting views of the Terze group and is very sunny but rather sultry, especially along the middle section if walked on a fairly sunny afternoon. Extreme caution is recommended in the short landslide-prone stretch below the pass.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the pass down the path that leads west decided, after a few tens of metres the original track has suffered a landslide. As a result the walker must cross a steep and landslide-prone “by-pass” that should be approached with caution, despite the presence of support poles that are not, however, not particularly reliable. Here then, the at the junction (signed) for the Damiana bivouac: you leave the path n. 232 (which leads to the Cadini saddle) to the left, obviously (therefore) turning right (north) along a good path, between boulders, low vegetation and debris, that runs through the centre of the Cadin di Fuori. If the weather is rather hot, as soon as you hear a gurgling brook not miss your chance! A few metres from the path, with a slight deviation to the left, you can quench your thirst and recharge your bottles with pure and delicious water. Further down the steep and stony track, the track crosses an area of mugo pine and low vegetation. Then finally at the first signs of the forest, a mixture of fir and larch, the walker pops out on the plain that precedes the Ziegelhütte (see itinerary n. 3 in the Walking section) and on from there to the centre of Sappada.
