From Gardeccia take the dirt road marked path no. 546 and head for the Vaiolét valley, and the rocks known as the Porte Neigre.You will come to the path from the Passo da le Zigolade (no. 541) and you will soon reach the Preuss and Vajolet refuges at 2,243 m (1 hour). Next take path no. 584 to the Passo Principe (Principe Pass) but then turn left almost immediately to begin the climb up towards the Vaiolét towers (path no. 542). When you arrive you will find the re Alberto I refuge at 2,621 m (1 hour; 2 hrs).The basin is called the Gartl and is formed by the Vaiolét towers, the north face of the Catinaccio (Ciadenac) and the Crode di Re Laurino mountains. Now take the easy path across the scree to the Santner Pass (30 mins; 2 hrs 30).
