Col dei Bois Basso
This is a classic itinerary that traverses beneath the base of the Torri del Falzarego and the Col dei Bois walls, magnificent buttresses in front of the immense Tofane. This is a historic First World War path nowadays used predominantly by climbers making their way to the multi-pitch routes that wind their way up the towers.
Take the SS 48 to Passo Falzarego.
Start from the Col Gallina skiing area parking lot, about 15 km from Cortina.
A large boulder at the end of the parking lot marks the start of the itinerary. After a section through pine trees (take care right at the end) the route continues nicely in slight descent along the mule path constructed by the Alpini during the First World War. Walk along this path no. 402 beneath the base of the Torri del Falzarego and Col dei Bois, past buildings and field hospitals dating back to the Great War. Do not miss out on the fantastic Torri del Falzarego: their 250m sheer vertical faces are compact and ideal for rock climbing in summer. Looking up high you will almost definitely make out some chamois feeding on these south facing slopes, as the snow melts early on in the season.
At the fork continue to descend instead taking path no. 412 up left to the Col dei Bòis saddle. Our path no. 402 descends first to "Casòn de Ròzes" and then finishes at the Passo Falzarego road.
Take the free shuttle bus service (every half hour) from the Passo Falzarego road to Col Gallina.
Normal equipment for winter walking, snowshoes and poles. Binoculars recommended.
No obvious danger.
