It starts from Selva Gardena towards Corvara: after the ascent of Dantercepies you get to Passo Gardena (2,298 m.) to descend to Corvara, entering in Val Badia. After a stretch of asphalt to pass the town you go towards the town of Campolongo, taking the left towards Arlara Monte. After a short climb (maximum gradient of 26%) you will remain at altitude, passing by Ciampai, Piz Sorega, Bioch Refuge and Pralonghià Refuge (2,157).

Then you go down (some parts are on a Ski slope) towards Passo Campolongo (1,875). Here begins the descent to Arabba with a first part on a dangerous dirt road.
