Ascent Trip Report

After the previous afternoon's Corno Grande ascent.

From NE, Chalet del Sirente, plenty parking. Marked trail all the way, woodland then limestone slopes and cliff scenery, no scrambling.

Route starts as rough track immediately R of the Chalet (ristorante). Take care with routefinding initially (I had GPS off and went astray): keep L at first junction, in 200m fork L off main track at cairn, following paint marked trail. In another 200m cross straight over another wide track (2 cairns), following paint marked trail. The next R turn at 1720 is more obvious (continuation L is less well trodden, both are paint marked), then a small clearing has views of impressive cliffs above, (I met 2 Italians who had camped there, lovely spot although water would apparently need to be carried up from trailhead). Route passes R of these, initially in woodland then climbing open grassy flowery slopes, a little rubbly in places, especially as it climbs steeply R to reach the summit plateau, marked by a post in a cairn - note this for descent. Then easy trail to summit which is marked by a boulder next to a trig pillar, with a GPS bolt nearby suggestion its elevation should be accurate to 0.1m (mapped as 2348m).

Up in 2h20, 15mins on top, 1h45 down, a lovely hike, sunny but mostly a nice breeze.
