Ascent Trip Report

There's a fair choice of routes, including via ferrata on some, on this popular mountain. Except on the VF it is easy walking. Driving to the trailhead is straightforward on winding metalled roads.
I started at Rifugio Revolto, where there's ample roadside parking N45.69465 E11.11876 1345m. There is a choice of easy gradient unpaved road or steeper short cuts on maintained paths to Rifugio Pertica N45.70343 E11.11616 1530m. I turned left off the road on to path 108b at N45.70854 E11.12486 1680m. The path reaches the main ridge at Rifugio Fraccarol N45.72360 E11.12912 2226m. The summit is on a small 35m cone above the rifugio.
For descent I went via a saddle at Bocchetta Mosca N4572389 E11.13698 2021m to Rifugio Scalorbi 45.71102 E11.13995 1767m and rejoined the main track back to the start.
