Below Cima della Madonna, this is the most recent refuge to be built from scratch by the SAT (Association of Trentino Mountaineers). Inaugurated in September 1980, it gets its name from the Spigolo del Velo, one of the finest classic climbs in the Dolomites: a 440-metre route, first climbed in 1920 and still attracting (skilled) climbers from around the world. Not far away, on the other side of Cima Cimerlo, in one of the remotest corners of the Pale di San Martino, is the protected path dedicated to Dino Buzzati, journalist (and writer) from Belluno who loved the Pale di San Martino more than any other Dolomitic group. Open From mid-June to late September Before leaving for your hike, always contact the manager to verify the actual opening of the mountain hut Walks It takes 4 hours to get to the Rifugio Rosetta Giovanni Pedrotti on the Nico Gusela via ferrata via Passo di Ball. The Rifugio Pradidali can be reached on the Velo and Porton via ferratas in 3 hours. The ascent of Cima Stanga is not particularly difficult (30 minutes), and it takes 1 ¼ hours to get to Cima Cimerlo on the Buzzati Path.
