Starts at the top of Monte Altissimo, near Rifugio Damiano Chiesa. The first part is wider and very rocky, but somehow faster than the lower one. After the first cross of Busatte to Altissimo, it becomes more technical and steep, with lots of roots around. This section is also more fragmented, as you'll have to speed down whenever you cross the street.
The scenery on the upper part is amazing.

Access Info

At the end of Busatte to Altissimo, turn right on the rocky trail that goes towards the lake.
