Bivacco Gastaldi (2625m), trail 3A
from Rifugio Gabiet to Bivacco Gastaldi
Trail 3A starts from Rifugio Gabiet (2370m) and arrives at Bivacco Gastaldi (2625m). It is 5491m long and the total positive elevation gain is 259m.
The approximate time for the climb is 1h56. The trail is rated of difficulty E.
Long trail, with a couple of ups and downs in between that don’t increase the elevation surpassed by much: only in the last kilometer do you go up, when you reconnect with trail 3 coming from Gressoney-La-Trinité, and you have to overcome the same equipped section (the only technically challenging point of the entire trail).
