Starting behind the Valparola mountain hut take the path which takes you to the southern side of a small hill. From here follow the summer trail which first traverses a slight downhill slope and then levels out until it reaches an area of boulders where you climb diagonally across the slope at the base of the Piz Ciampëi up to the valley on the left.
The descent in the Armentarola direction in an open valley is an easy, pleasant one. The first part, on an ideal terrain brings you down to a clearing. Here you continue skiing on the right hand side of the river and through the wood and get to a wide, sunny meadow. Take the path on your left which brings you down to Armentarola.
