Path for experienced hikers "Bepo de Medil" For “Pala de Mesdì”
ery beautiful and panoramic path, traced in 1930 by the alpine guide and manager of the Gardeccia refuge, Giuseppe Desilvestro, called Bepo de Medil.
It begins behind the hut and crossing the Ruf de Soal, it climbs us among the mughis to slip into a very rough canal, therefore it turns to the right for a narrow and wild small gully where exists an equipped line. Emerged to the sun it proceeds for easy small rocks, that only at the end introduces two delicate narrow passages between the rocks; it goes up again for a ridge to the top called “Pala de mesdì” (m.2758), where there is a cross in wood blessed by Don Tita Soraruf in memory of the dead of all the wars.
Descent: it returns for the final ridge and it turns right toward the Larsec Valley. You continues for the Scalette pass (equipped) N° 583 or for the Pope pass.
Journey time 5h30.
Suggestions: not suitable for everybody, wild ground and lonely stretch. You have to do it uphill and with beautiful and settled weather. It can introduce snow in the small gully at the beginning of the season. Ask information about the conditions and the layout before departing.
