Comment on stage (north to south)

If you have not already filled up your water bottle, a spring is situated close to the refuge, as you set out. Today, is particularly varied  incorporating  a mix of terrain. You have to cross an open area of shingle like terrain before entering a cirque area.  You cross into it at 1950m at Bocca di Pisciaghja and will progress around a semi circular route to arrive at a col opposite. You leave the cirque and head downhill steeply to arrive at your night stop Carrozzu.
