Ascent Trip ReportAfter the previous aftrernoon's La Marzola ascent.
From ESE, Passo Xomo, although it's possible to save a km and some height gain by parking at Bochetta Campiglia 1216m, €6 for 24h, parking ticket machine. From that point the impressive Road of 52 tunnels leads a fascinating route, built during WW1 as a way of supplying the Italian front line without exposure to Austrian fire. Torch needed for some longer tunnels, and beware low headroom in places. Good info boards. At Refugio Papa I follow the Coppa GPS track to Cima Palon, outcrop S of trig pillar, with 3cm trig bolt, 3h40 from Xomo. I continue past Dente Italiano across the former front line to Dente Austriaca, then trail and dirt road past chapel (whole place is a Sacred Area on account of the 3000 that died here) then follow dirt road back to Passo Xomo, with a few signposted shortcuts to miss out the road zigzags. 6h30 round trip, finishing in cool overcast conditions after a sunny ascent; within an hour it's raining heavily.
Next a 4h drive east to the Slovenian border area, heavy rain all the way, but with some straightforward peaks in prospect and, as it turns out, reasonable weather. Next morning I climb Monte San Simeone.
