From the Porta Sopra al Forno expert hikers can also reach the top of the Croda del Becco, 2810 m (1 ½ - 2 hours).

Lying on the belly and with the head above the North Wall of the Croda the Becco looking down at the lake – only for that it’s worth climbing to the top!

It is difficult to imagine the lunar landscape of Senes behind the 1000 m North -Wall of the Croda del Becco.
