The saddle located between the rocks at the base of Creta Cacciatori to the east and a small area of grassy and rocky high ground to the west, the so-called Creta di Casera Vecchia (2285 m), which in turn defines another large grassy saddle, the false passo dei Cacciatori pass, beyond which rise the steep south-eastern rock faces of monte Chiadènis.

The place name derives from its quite ancient use by local hunters on the trail of deer and other game. The pass, which connects the val Fleons and the val Avanza, is now rarely used for this purpose, but instead serves mainly as a transit point for those wishing to reach the forcella delle Genziane and/or the peak of monte Avanza from the Calvi refuge. The remains of shelters just below the pass on the south side, the barbed wire scattered here and there to the north and the positions carved out of the rocks above are evidence of the dramatic events of the First World War. The route, a little uncomfortable but equipped with metal cable for a short section after the Sesis pass, offers beautiful views towards monte Oregone, the border ridge, the val Fleons and Creta Cacciatori.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Calvi refuge, reached with itinerary n. 24 (in the Walking section), take the mule track, steep at times, to the Sesis pass. From here (signed) bend sharply right (southwards) along a thin track that drops sharply with very steep hairpin bends towards the Pic Chiadènis, passing beside the rocks at the base of the north face, leading via a slight slope close to the first (false) Cacciatori pass and then quickly, with a short traverse, downhill toward the goal.

Return

The return to the refuge can be conducted along the same route, but instead of returning to the Calvi refuge, you may want to follow the itinerary n. 35 in the opposite direction (to return to the large car park at the crossroads for Calvi. Having reach this spot, just continue along the provincial road n. 22 for 500 metres to reach the Casa Vecchia dairy farm).

With this you have completed the ring of monte Chiadènis.
