The climb to the Re Alberto 1° hut and to the Santner Pass is a classic of hiking in the Catinaccio-Rosengarten group, a must for those who decide to visit this area and feels able to deal with short scrambling sections on easy rocks with assistance of metal wires at the most demanding points.

From the Preuss and Vajolet huts, the path goes north and almost immediately at the junction, take the left hand path no. 542 that climbs the basin between Punta Emma and the East Tower. In an hour you’ll reach the Gartl basin where the Re Alberto 1° hut stands.

The route continues in the wide valley between the north face of the Catinaccio and Re Laurino crags, on an easy path, in the direction of Santner Hut. It can be reached in about half an hour.

From here the view on the former shelter and the towers seems to be the work of a particularly inspired painter.

Return on the same path of the way up.
