From Alpine Hut Bar where, as I said earlier, you can overnight in case you decide to separate the 2 days itinerary, go back for about 100 metres and take to the former Lovarezze Hut and Baito Caltrano before descending towards Asiago via Baia Torle. The descent is very long and fast until Baito Pria from the water where you will turn right taking the climb toward Monte Corno.
Arrived at Monte Corno, near the brow towards the plain, turn right for The Top Clubs. Here the climb grows up to Malga Top Source and Summitof the same name.
After the climb we descend crossing the classic mountain road overlooking the plain.
Head towards Malga Foraoro and close to the turn-off that climbs towards the Hill, turn left, crossing a barrier that serves to restrict the traffic of vehicles.
From here starts a long rough descent, sometimes challenging, called "fire resistant" to Paris, the starting point of the route.
