Passo Pordoi (2.240 m) is in Val di Fassa, above Canazei. This is where the cable car departs, taking us up to 2,947 m, on Sass Pordoi, one of the most exposed peaks on the Sella Group. From here, the route continues own to the Pordoi fork, which marks the start of trail no. 627 in the direction of the Boé Refuge (meeting in part, the Dolomite Altavia AV 2).
Crossing the lunar landscape, we approach the Boé Refuge, at the top of the famous Val di Mesdi. Just a short time before the refuge, there is a fork indicating Piz Boé on the right. We will follow the trail no. 638 and from here, the route is all upwards. The trail continues along some sections of exposed rock, made easier by the presence of ropes and metal rungs. Although a steady footing is needed, the tooled section does not present any serious difficulties.
After almost two hours of walking, we will finally reach the peak. On Piz Boé, as well as an aerial transmitter and a cross, we will also find the small Capanna di Fassa, a wooden shelter built on the small number of square metres available. But the true attraction of Boè is the fantastic view over the Sella mountain group and the surrounding Dolomites. Fanes, Marmolata, Sassolungo, Odle… to name just the nearest few. For our excusrion we have chosen the easiest route. There is a shorter, more direct (but also steeper and more exposed) route from Forcella Pordoi along the trail marked Capanna Fassa / Piz Boé.
