Ascent Trip Report

After a morning ascent of Monte San Simeone.

From NW, Monte Zoncolan col, good trail, including better looking 2m lower near twin Monte Arvenis. Options from car park are the obvious ski service track, and less obvious footpath which starts from just below (W of) col. I went up via the track, which leads past 2 chairlift top stations to a third, then short trail to summit outcrop with small cross and shrine, and another summit a short way to east, which Peakbagger has as the summit.

Seeing the much more interesting Monte Arvenis to S is just 2m lower according to Kompass mapping, and approx P123m, I added it to the route: zigzag path to col, nice path winding past the various obstacles on N ridge of Arvenis, then a split, with unmapped R fork climbing direct to summit, YDS1 on the verge of 1+. Summit better equipped than Tamai, with large cross, trig pillar (stump) and a stone construction. Excellent view, although high summits partially in cloud, including tomorrow's Coglians dominant to N. Mostly sunny despite forecast rain. 40 mins to Tamai, 2h35 round trip including Arvenis.

Next morning I climbed Monte Coglians.
