Ascent Trip Report

To while away an afternoon I decided to have a quick look at the summit of Monte Altissimo di Nago which is the the most northerly summit of Monte Baldo which forms the east bank of Lake Garda. It wasn't until afterwards I realised that, at 2079m with a prominence of P653, it is a Major.
From Bocca del Greer I walked past the Rifugio Graziani (1617m) on a well engineered track that traverses up the hillside all the way to the Rifugio Altissimo "Damiani Chiesa" (2059m). At the back of the rifugio, the top is marked by an ugly metal contraption.
To the immediate north there is much evidence that during WW1 the hilltop formed part of the front line between Italy and the Austrians. There are trenches, dugouts, what were probably gun emplacements and a chapel.
On the way down the track the clouds on the main ridge of Monte Baldo cleared and I was able to get a view of the next day's goal.
