Gresso–Capanna Alpe Canaa

In Gresso durchs steile Dorf hinauf und auf dem markierten, bequemen Weg zum grosszügig ausgebauten Pian della Crosa. Weiter über einen waldigen Rücken hoch, dann nach rechts zu den Ruinen der Alpe Bassa (1744 m). Dort verzweigt sich der Weg. Wir wählen jenen nach rechts und gelangen rasch zum Passo della Bassa (1804 m), von wo eine waagrechte Querung in rund 30 Minuten zur Hütte führt.
