Indren - Rifugio Gnifetti
The starting point - gondola Indren (3275 m.), is located in front of the basin of the glacier Indren that goes to the Punta Giordani. Cross the basin, going slightly downhill. The path leads to the Rifugio Mantova, and then to Rifugio Gnifetti. At the end of the path, pass the mountainside gaining the passage to the top shelf. From here face the steep section that reaches the Mantova mountain hut. Leaving the hut on the left, continue on the path, after a gentle stretch climb up the Lys glacier. At some point the glacier becomes less inclined, when you come across an obvious rocky hill, exceed it and arrive to the Rifugio Gnifetti.
There's a possibility to shorten the trail, climb up directly pass the Indren glacier and to a steep slope which in summer is equipped in fixed ropes.
