After climbing down the Scala degli Amici, you head north, climbing and dropping here and there and staying on the narrow, exposed ridgecrest. In spots, where the ridge is relatively flat, there is no ferrata cable - but the footing is good and if you have a reasonable head for heights, you will be ok.

Next is a traversing section, where the route follows a mostly horizontal course underneath the massif of Cima Brenta. The more exposed ledge portions are protected, the less exposed portions are not.

There are many sections of ledges and trail along this entire mostly horizontal section named after various people or mountain organizations. Eventually, as you approach the Bocca del Tuckett, the route starts to descend, climbing down some stretches of ferrata along the way.

Descending to Bocca del Tuckett
Once at the Bocca del Tuckett, you make your way down to your starting point (or a rifugio) depending on your preference. If you are heading back to the Rifugio Tuckett or to the Vallesinella parking area, head down trail 303 to the west.

The Sentiero Benini ferrata portion of the Via delle Bocchette starts here and heads north. Click here if you want to read about that route.
