The High Route of Valmalenco – 6th stage

Place of departure: Marinelli Bombardieri shelter

Maximum altitude: 2983 m

Difference in altitude: + 250 m / -500 m

Route time: 3 h

Distance: 5 km / 8 km (variant through Forcella di Fellaria)

 

It is the shortest stage, which crosses the highest pass of the entire High Route, Bocchetta di Caspoggio at almost 3000 m. Here you can breathe the air of the highest peaks of the group, perfectly visible from the pass. Due to the withdrawal of Caspoggio glacier, the transitability along the same can be difficult. The use of ice axes and crampons is highly recommended especially when you intend to travel this stretch during the advanced season when the glaciers are abundantly crevassed. Another possibility which consists in covering the "high" variant, largely on the glacier, through the Eastern Marinelli Pass (3090 m), requires mountaineering materials and experience; once past the glacial stretch, descend to Laghetto di Fellaria and from here to the pastures of the homonymous mountain pasture.
If you do not have experience in crossing glacial terrain, it is strongly recommended that you are accompanied by a guide or that you should take the simplest variant which includes the passage from Forcella di Fellaria (2819 m - variant). It avoids stretches of glacier but involves the descent to Carate shelter where the deviation is encountered.
Bignami shelter is located on Alpe Fellaria, one of the highest mountain pastures in the valley still in use.
