Ascent Trip Report

Parked on the road (SP654) near a gate on a steep cobbled track which gave access to the hill. Walked through mixed woodland gaining height steadily. The woodland gave way to meadow at a refugio (which was closed). We crossed the meadow and then walked up a steep path towards the ski lifts and the summit. From here we headed for Monte Maggiorasca crossing the col before the ascent to reach it by well defined paths. We retraced our steps to the car.
