Location: Forcella Cesurette (1815 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto

This is the saddle dividing Pale di San Martino and Pale di San Lucano.
It is a surprise to find that it is represented here for the first time.

Forcella Cesurette is accessible both from Valle San Lucano (longer, since you start from 800 m) and from Gares (shorter, since the start lies at 1300 m). The San Lucano ascent is nowadays popular also among bikers, since with a strong MTB you can cycle the path even beyond the saddle, in direction Campo Boaro - you cleary see some switchbacks in the image.
One of these switchbacks marks the start of the adventurous ascent to the Cor, namely, the heart-shaped rock hole below the Cima dei Balconi, one of the unknown treasures of the Dolomiti. Descending the other side, through the striking suspended valley called Tromba del Miel, you realize a first class loop. Some metres of rope is recommended for a delicate passage in a couloir right at the beginning.

10 HF, Canon G1X, 28mm equiv, f/5.6, 1/640.

Matthias + HJBäu: I have now inserted some information.
To work out the GPS track featuring the Cor loop I need to find out time. Meanwhile, working with the arrows in Google Photos you can already access a good deal of material.

Thanks, Alberto, for your hints 
Should I happen to visit the Dolomites in the next few years, I 'll try to visit the mentioned places.

This week, I have to work at the preparation of a slideshow about the Balkans.
But next week I will complete the track of the "mysterious" access to the Cor:
I happen to have extra trouble with it since that day I carried the wrong batteries...
Just keep an eye on Wikiloc
Which, incidentally, could become my unique publishing platform in the future: namely, I am gradually abandoning all the rating-based photography sites, since I like everyday less the dynamics that develop in them.
Provided that, alas, this is only a very marginal aspect of the general madness that seems to be conquering the world!
Cheers, Alberto.
