The Scaletta hut, built in 1994/95 and enlarged in 2007, stands next to the military hut of the same name built by a company of Zappatori during the Second World War (1942).

It is the northernmost hut in Ticino, perched on a natural balcony overlooking the Pian Giairett, at an altitude of 2205m, it enjoys an unobstructable view of the Blenio valley and beyond, at times the view southwards stretches as far as M.te Generoso; the closest are the Cima di Camadra and Piz Medel. The hut serves as a support to reach many other peaks that exceed 3000m, or even for less demanding walks that allow the hiker to discover hidden places of great beauty.
