|Others in Party:||Andrew Tibbetts|
|Date:||Thursday, August 28, 2008|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||1774 m / 5823 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportMonte Grapps: 1775m, P
Map: Tabacco 1:25k map 51 (25m contours).
Stats: 2km (both summits), 80mH
Time: Thur 28 Aug 2008, late afternoon.
Start: Car park at Rif, Bassano, E of main summit.
Route: From the car park, a flight of steps leads W to the main summit. Paths lead to the N summit then back to the car park.
Difficulties: A labyrinth of small roads to negotiate; none once the car park is reached.
Triangulation point: mapped, none found. I searched for a bolt, without success. Probably lost to reservoir construction or alterations.
Summit: The highest point of the main (S) summit is occupied by a covered reservoir, unfenced. Immediately to the S are war memorials: Austrian to the N; Italian to the S. It is thus fairly well visited. The N summit, also mapped as 1775m, is cluttered with the remains of various derelict gun emplacements. The highest point used to be fenced off by chain-link, but nowadays there is a large hole and no security issues.
Notes: After a fairly tough ascent of Col Nudo in the morning, we spent the afternoon mostly driving, coaxing the car up Col Visentin, then finally this equally undemanding summit. We didn't initially realise it was a twin summit, but on returning to the car a map check indicated that the N summit is indeed equal in height, so we headed out again: a very easy 2km round trip. We then found our way down to Bassano, across to Asiago (via a quick Pizzeria stop), to spend the night at our chosen trailhead, ready for tomorrow's Cima Dodici ascent.
