Indren Glacier (3288m), trail 6C
From the Salati Pass to the Indren Glacier
Trail 6C starts from the Passo dei Salati/Salati Pass (2931m) and reaches the Indren Glacier (3288m). It is 2401m long and the total positive elevation gain is 357m.
The approximate time for the climb is 1h06. The trail is classified as being of EEA difficulty.
Via this trail we reach the edge of the Indren Glacier, along a fairly technically challenging but safe route (some sections equipped with ropes).
Once there, you can continue by crossing the Indren Glacier and then rejoin the trail that joins the Città di Mantova and Capanna Gnifetti refuges(read the page on Trail 6A for more information on this part of the route).
Before the new Passo dei Salati – Punta Indren cable car was built, this trail was traveled by those who, starting from Passo dei Salati, had Capanna Gnifetti as their destination. Today, the new cable car makes it possible to jump directly onto the Indren Glacier, so this trail is now very rarely used.
