A classic route consists of a departure, a series of control points to visit in the order listed, and an arrival. On the ground each control point is marked with a white and orange flag, in the jargon called lantern. To record their passage, the athlete must punch the witness card.

3 days since departure date
Orienteering: After a briefing with the Alpine Guides on the basics of orientation, the use of the compass, the reading of the topographic paper and navigation for azimut (angle between the north-south and the direction of travel), the children will head to waypoint (flags to be discovered in the route) managing the route themselves. Compasses and topographical maps will be provided to the boys.
Climbing: In the rock gym “Busi Bassi” will be set up climbing routes on limestone rock of about 15-20m each. The children will be insured by the Alpine Guides and will be able to discover the beauty of the vertical world by approaching basic progression techniques and assisted lowers.
Climbing harnesses and protective helmets will be provided to the boys.
Tirolesa: It is the most “ludicrous” aspect of the day and consists of a descent on pulley placed on a safety rope that, taking advantage of a drop in the rocky flounces in the woods, will allow the boys to descend hanging from the rope held by an additional safety rope.
For this reason, climbing harnesses and protective helmets will also be provided to the boys.
