Skyluke for Alex
Elegant and beautiful route, exposed and with continuous difficulties.
From Fiera di Primiero ascend Val Canali to the hotel/restaurant La Ritonda, from here continue on foot for 1.5 hours along path #709 to reach Rifugio Pradidali (www.rifugiopradidali.it).
From Rifugio Pradidali ascend the Cima Canali normal route up the gully (30 minutes) to the base of Torre Gialla (cairn marker and green thread at the start of the route).

The route is dedicated to Alex Bettega, a 16-year-old who left us prematurely a short while ago. He really loved climbing and the mountains in his backyard. Ciao Alex.
