How to get there From the east you start just above Falcade Alto (1406m), when coming down from Passo di San Pellegrino/Pas de Sèn Pelegrin (1919m) and climb steeply up to the Passo di Vallés (2033m). It will be a longer climb with the same end if you begin down in the Agordino valley at Cencenighe Agordino (770m). The other approach from the west starts just after Paneveggio (1554m) where the road straight ahead go to Passo di Rolle (1971m). This is a somewhat steep climb, but it is not long and not as steep as on the east side. From Passo di Vallés a gravel road goes up north to the pass in 2.9 km. It looks bad at start, but it is quite fine later (with some minor exceptions).
Other comments It is quite worthwhile to go up here as the views from Passo di Vallés are not nearly as good as up here. One could possibly continue down this gravel road and walk on a path to the other end of the little lake you will see down there and thus get to yet another pass – Forcella Caserette (2108m) – on a path that leads to Passo di San Pellegrino. Water is found at Passo di Vallés.
