    This stretch of trail, classified by the CAI "EE" that is for expert hikers, climbs along the north side of Corno alle Scale. It is very steep and fun, you have to use your hands often and there are some short aerial stretches. To deal with it you need a sure step, an aptitude for walking on steep mountain paths, hiking shoes and above all NOT suffering from vertigo. Not recommended in case of rain, snow and ice. It is preferable to follow it uphill, choosing for the return the other paths that descend from the Corno to Cavone, planning a ring route,

    Beautiful but demanding stretch for expert hikers to be traveled with the utmost caution.

    Climb to the Cross of Punta Sofia. Challenging, not to be taken lightly, even from a safety point of view. It is no coincidence that it is marked EE (expert hikers), so if you are not sure it is better to choose alternative routes. Not even suitable for those suffering from vertigo, in some places one wonders where the path rests! The sight is impressive, but it would be a problem for someone to find out halfway through that they are sensitive to heights. And if you came from the Cross, and you feel like trying it downhill, maybe the first time, well I don't recommend it. Slope, gravity, stones and narrow path make it more treacherous in my opinion. Better to face it on all fours uphill ...
