The Della Rossa Mountain Pass, also known as Geisspfad is a wide rock mountain pass that allows us to discern the works of ancient glaciers that left the traces of their flow on these monotone rocks. We’re in the realm of the serpentine rocks, a collection of green rocks which, due to their iron oxide content, take on a reddish color in the presence of atmospheric agents. From the Devero Church we cross the plains up until we reach the Cantone area where we take the path that coasts the brook and starts going upwards at a slight slope of serpentine rocks which emerge from the larch woods. In a brief amount of time we reach the prairies of Campello and following the last Alpine lodging houses the upwards slope becomes more involved: the path goes up steeply via numerous steps up until the Della Rossa Plains are reached. We take a right and following a brook we start going back up to where we come out right under the bastions which carry the brook-crossing within the Italian side of the political boundary which seems unsurpassable. Nevertheless, after taking a better look we can discern a small eight-meter long iron ladder which allows us to surpass a brief rocky tract of the bastions (be careful). Not much later we finally reach the great rocky tableland which presents evident traces of glacial modeling. Such tableland must be crossed by scrupulously following the varnish cableways so as not to risk becoming disoriented. Finally, we reach the Della Rossa Pass which is distinguished by an infinite series of stone statues.
