This is the descent for the route "VF Nuvolau":

The logical finish to climbing Via Ferrata Nuvolau (with or without tagging the summit of Ra Gusela) is the summit of the Nuvolau -- with snacks and drinks at the Rifugio Nuvolau hut (N46.4951, E12.0458). Start NNW down the wide trail 439. After about 0.45 km, reach a sign to turn left on 441 to go to Rifugio Averau hut with a via ferrata to the top of the Averau peak. But the simple return is to stay right and go another 0.9 km N then NNE to the top station of the Cinque Torri lift (where snacks and drinks are served at yet another hut). With lots of extra energy and time, there's a loop scramble/hike around/through the famous Cinque Torri climbing rocks. Bottom of lift big parking (N46.5187, E12.0381). About 305 vertical meters or 1,000 vertical feet.
