This is one of the oldest routes in the Dolomites (1912) and is still now one of the most difficult. In late autumn the course is advised against in the early morning because of the frozen ground.

From Passo Sella, 2.240 m, you cross below the three Torri del Sella following a good path until arriving to a black-gray colored wall, which is very wet. Now the route brings us fastly to a big basin of rubble. Across the big terrace, 2.700 m, which surrounds the massif of the Sella, you arrive to the last part of the route. After having gone along a gorge, you reach the plateau covered with the rubble of the Sella-massif and finally the top (2.941 m).

Through the summits of the Piz Gralba, 2.974 m, Piz Miara, 2.965 m, and Piz Beguz, 2.972 m, you arrive to the path nr. 677, but you remain on the path nr. 649. On the fork before the Antersass, 2.908 m, you turn right, following the path nr. 647 and crossing the Val Lasties you arrive to the road to Passo Sella, 2.240 m, which you can reach by hitchhiking or on foot.

This is one of the most frequented routes.
