Day 8
Rifugio Treviso - Forcela d'Oltro - Rifugio Cereda

This eighth day started quite cloudy. We started around the slope at about the same altitude, 45 minutes later we attacked the steep climb to the Forcella d'Oltro. An hour and a quarter later we arrived at Forcela d'Oltro from where we have nice views for both sides, the weather got better, we would continue on quite steep terrain for some kilometers, the trail, after losing 200m of altitude, it continues to the right and continues to the edge of imposing cliffs always in a beautiful cenario.
We once again gained altitude before starting the steep descent to the Cereda Pass. This part is equally beautiful and impressive, it has several rock formations that look like spikes. Then we enter the forest where we can see a little part of the impressive damage caused by a strong thunderstorm September last year, huge fallen trees like sticks.
The trail ends at the road, from this point we can continue down to Cereda Pass, where the Cereda Rifugio is located, we arrived around 12h30m, the weather got worse again, we had a very delicious lunch, we eat always very well in Italy.
We had in mind to walk a few more hours, but around 1pm it started to rain and we thought it would be best to stay around, which turned out to be a great idea as we had a lot of fun with our two Italian hiking companions this day, We take the opportunity to eat very well, to change a little from the dry food.

Day 7
Rifugio Pradidali - Passo del Lede - Rifugio Treviso

This day begins as we liked it, with a climb, 1 hour later we passed in the pass della fradusta and half an hour later we arrived at Passo Delle Lede where you can enjoy beautiful views.
Then a long and beautiful descent to the base of the valley, at 1400m, at the base of the valley we climbed again to reach the Treviso Rifugio, ate eggs, bacon and potatoes and as soon as we had eaten it started to rain, it was decided, we were going to sleep there, the stages of this high Via 2 are not huge but are always conditioned by the weather, at least that's what happened to us.
As we slept in the refuge we ended up meeting some people and it turned out to be a very nice afternoon and night.
