Route description

Maloja – Capanna del Forno CAS

From Passo del Maloja (approx. 1805 m) head SE across the plain of Lan Palü to a bridge at P. 1793. Cross the bridge and you follow the alpine road to the Lägh da Cavloc (lake, 1908 m) and alp of the same name, then continue on the line of the summer path to the small reservoir above Plan Canin (1986 m). Follow the stream southwest, until you reach the Vadrec del Forno (glacier). Cross leftwards (SE) over the foot of this fairly flat glacier (marking poles); continue in the direction of Monte Rosso. From 2400 m, a steep moraine bank leads up into the basin below Monte Rosso. Shortly, arc round to the north and locate the hut at 2574 m.
