personal comments

Last day of our Dolomite trip. We tried again to go the Muntejela de Senes, as the snow was more stable than the previous day. We managed to get to the summit, but unfortunately, the powder on the way down was a bit crusted.

Getting to the Sora Forno pass from the Rifugio Senes took longer than expected, as it's lots of small ups and down...
The top of the Forno valley was wonderful, but we got a bit lost around 1150m (where you have to turn to the north), as the Tobacco map seemed to indicated to go down a cliff... In the end we followed some tracks that were on the E side of the valley, where there is a via Ferrata. We had to go down on foot ~ 10m, as it was a bit too steep/rocky, then did a traverse to the left to get on the other side of the ridge, where there was a nice snow field.

The gully (Buco del Giavo/ Nabiges Loch) and slopes above the lakes didn't have so much snow on them, so it was a bit of a fight with the bushes... Could have been better to stay higher up and descent on the slopes below the gr. Jaufen.

Crossed the forzen lake, realised we just missed the last bus, so continued along the road, and went down a forest track to S Vito that has more buses.
