The route climbs with a constant slope, except for the a short stretch on a sloping plain at the Pian Venezia Malga Mare - Larcher hut - Careser dam: Pian Venezia, where the Noce Bianco river flows to our left. The last two kilometers are on an easy stony ground Malga Mare - Larcher hut - Careser dam: easy stony ground: it is a structure called "Morena", an accumulation of stones previously transported by the glacier moving downstream.
