The two groups will join together and we will stay overnight at Rifugio Tuckett
  • 2 Aug Sunday: Continuing to explore the paths starting from Tuckett. In the afternoon/evening the mapping party will end and we will reach the cars/public transportation stops.

All the paths are quite easy and alpine experience required is low. Only basic equipment is needed (hiking boots).
