Ascent Trip Report

As we walked up the track we discovered that we could have driven up a little higher/further to another carpark just before the rifugio. From this carpark you could opt for a more direct ascent up a tarmac road to the military masts. We chose the more gradual route which took us onto and then along the ridge to the same point. From here stay on the ridge until you reach its high point, which is marked.
