Stage 4 - Ortler 29 June - 3 July

The Ortler from the Payer Hut
From the vineyards of Bolzano, the route takes a gentle wooded ridge on large trails to Lana near Merano.  After this gentle interlude, it ascends 2000m to a long high ridge, culminating in the Hasenhorl, before descending all the way to the next valley.  After following the line of the valley it rises to a group of snowy covered mountains crowned by the lofty Vertainspitze,before descending once again to the valley at Solden.  The normal route on the 3905m Ortler follows, with a long up and down route parallel to the great Northen glaciers of the Ortler range, ending at Valdimentro near Bormio.

169km, 11,000m ascent, trails, mountaineering
