Mountain range: Maddalene
Starting point:
Masi di Sopra, Val di Rabbi (1397m)
Total distance: 12.90km
Exposure: south-west, south, west

How to arrive:

Take the SS42 for the Val di Sale and Val di Rabbi. Just before entering Pracorno (855m), turn right for Ingenga (signposted).
Bear right keeping the church of Pracorno on your left and proceed uphill. At the next junction (Cagliari-Ingenga) 930m, continue uphill along the tarmac road towards Ingenga. Where you park depends on the amount of snow there is. You can often get as far as Masi di Sopra (1397m). Snow chains can be useful at the beginning of the season for covering the last stretch.

Introduction

The start of the route along a forest road makes it seem like a classic second-class route but the high-altitude part more than makes up for the long road on the lower stretch. The position of the route, at an angle between the Val di Rabbi and the Val di Sole, makes for breath-taking views. Last but not least, the slopes high up are free of vegetation and have just the right incline for fantastic skiing, especially when the snow is fresh.

Locations

Masi di Sopra (1397m); Masi Bretoni (1455m); Malga Cortinga di Sotto (1909m); Cima Lac (2439m).

Itinerary

Start out from Masi di Sopra (1397m).
After an initial stretch almost on the flat, from Masi di Sopra the route starts to climb northwards towards Masi Bretoni (1455m).
Go past the two huts at the side of the road and turn right onto the road for Malga Cortinga di Sotto (SAT signpost). The road accentuates the slope and leads up to the houses.
At Malga Cortinga di Sotto (1909m), pass behind the large barn and proceed uphill through the fields above the houses. Follow a path for about 100m then turn off to the right and climb north-eastwards.
The route climbs up over broad open slopes, which are never too steep, and onto a sort of ridge, which can just be made out and brings you out to the left of Cima Lac, onto the long watershed ridge that runs between Cima Lainert and Cima Lac.
Once you have reached the ridge and watershed, turn right and cross the last stretch of mountainside, which takes you up to the summit.
The first part of the descent from the summit offers an endless number of variations depending on the conditions of the snow and how much there is. The choice is up to you.
On the way back, from Malga Cortinga di Sotto, you can cut across the open field below the houses but then you will have to follow the road.
