POZZA DI FASSA (Buffaure) - SELLA BRUNÉCH - SAN NICOLÒ PASS REFUGE - SAN NICOLÒ PASS REFUGE - VAL SAN NICOLÒ
Take the cabin-lift to Buffaure (2,060 m). From Buffaure it is possible to climb further still using the chair-lift to Col de Valvacin, or you can walk up the ski run to the crest. You will pass the Baita Cuz refuge at 2,213 m. Now walk along the ridge behind the chair-lift terminal (path no. 613) to the top of Sas de Adam to enjoy a marvellous panorama of the Fassa Dolomites. Keep on the ridge, first in descent but then uphill, and then the path goes across to the Sela Brunéch Pass at 2,420 m (2 hrs). Here you have two alternatives.Get back onto the ridge above the chair-lift (path no. 613B) and proceed to the Sas de Roces. Here you will have to go round to the south on the side of the San Nicolò valley, and in certain places there is a metal safety cord. You will reach the grassy saddle above Sas Bianch and then there is a steep diagonal to the west side of the Varos ridge (path no. 613). Here there are fortifications left from WW1. Now the San Nicolò Pass (Pas de Sèn Nicolò) and the refuge (2,346 m) are visible and you will be down in a few minutes (2 hrs; 4 hrs). The way back is down through the San Nicolò valley. Take path no. 608 to the Baita Ciampié at 1,826 m (1 hour, 5 hrs), and then the asphalt road back to the village of Pozza di Fassa (1 hour 30; 6 hrs 30). Otherwise, from the Sela Brunèch, you first walk along the first part of the ridge and get to a fork. Here take the right along a path that cuts the grassy pasture of the Val di Roseal diagonally up to the Foscac di Sopra area, nearby three beatiful wodden huts. Right after these small buildings, take the zig-zig path that leads you to a dirt road and soon after to the WW1 Monument and the Baita Ciampiè refuge at 1,826 m in Val San Nicolò where you can walk all the way down to get back to Pozza (Poza).
