The departure is from Piamprato Soana (the village at the end of the Valley that extends from Valprato Soana), located in a pleasant grassy basin and surrounded by pine forests. Take the dirt track that leaves the village and, after crossing the stream, climb the Vandilliana Alp, pasture still used by shepherds, 1881 m above sea level. After entering the Valley of Ballard, where encounters with wild animals are likely to happen, climb up the hill, near which there are the ruins of an old mine. From the watershed line it's possible to sight the village of Piamprato, the Campiglia Soana Valley and the confluence of the Soana Valley to the lowland.
