(...continued from previous page)
Our hike back north along the base of the Civetta massif was pleasant enough, but relatively uneventful. We did have one small snowfield to cross along the way.
Brief snow crossing
Low clouds
Tiny dots
The weather seemed even cloudier than yesterday, and as we walked past the ascent route of the Alleghesi route, which we had just been on the day before, we could see that the cloud deck had already formed and was much lower than yesterday. The black dots of several climbing groups could be seen climbing the route. Even though we now knew that the route wasn't really that hard, it still looked mighty impressive from a distance!

We stopped for lunch at the rifugio Coldai on the way back, where I ordered a very tasty dish of gnocchi. After lunch, it was a short downhill hike to the grassy Col dei Baldi and the top chairlift. We were back at the cars by 2pm. A solid outing that had been, to be sure!
