Description of the route

From the arrival point of the Bettaforca cableway, continue along the right side of Mount Bettolina, on the Gressoney side, along the trail marked 9.
Go over wide stony expanses alternating with basins containing snow residues, then go up a steeper section of fractured rocks and go onto the rocky crest. The next section requires careful attention, despite the safety ropes and protection. After this point, go up the crest until you reach a shelf touched by the glacier on which the refuge stands.
