Stage 6

Rifugio XII Apostoli - Rifugio S. Agostini

Distance 2,8 km
Elevation gain 364 m
Time 2,30 h
Difficulty EEA - MD


From Rifugio XII Apostoli you can climb on gravel field and cliffs fitted with some security fittings along the path SAT 321 (EEA – MD) to the Bocchetta dei Due Denti (2859 m) in 1,15 hours.

From Bocchetta dei Due Denti the way continues down the iron ladders of the famous Ferrata Castiglioni that requires the use of harnesses, ferrata kit and protective helmets. This very panoramic and exposed section, with sheer rocks overhanging the Conca della Val d’Ambiez, then crosses the screes to reach Rifugio Silvio Agostini (2405 m) at the foot of the famous Cima d’Ambiez (3103 m). Walking time beginning of Ferrata Castiglioni – Rifugio Silvio Agostini 1,15 hours.

Rifugio Silvio Agostini (2405 m) lies in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Brenta Dolomites, Val d’Ambiez, which is narrow in the lower part, but gradually opens out into a lovely amphitheatre as you reach the refuge. The refuge is dedicated to Silvio Agostini, a mountain guide who fell from Campanile dei Brentei in 1936. From west to east the basin is framed by very steep dolomite walls, the most famous of which is Ambiez, tackled every year by hundreds of climbers. The refuge, built by private individuals in 1937, passed to the S.A.T. in 1976. Now extended and rebuilt the new refuge was opened on 17 September 1995. Here you can admire the stupendous view to the south of the Giudicarie valleys and Lake Garda with Monte Baldo in the background. There is a little church next to the refuge and above towers a huge solitary mass, evidence of the collapse in the late fifties of Torre Jandl, the peak that overhung the Vedretta d’Ambiez and the refuge. In recent years the refuge has hosted the summer rock climbing courses of the "Giorgio Gràffer" mountaineering school of the S.A.T.
