Ascent Trip Report

After the previous afternoon's ascent of Monte Cairo.

From NE, end of paved road above Carpinetto Romano, parking with signboard, nice circuit.

Up rough road W, round L bend then signed paintmarked trail 707 to R, thru junipers then shady beechwood, with sun already hot at 0700. Due N of Ardicara col I take shortcut path R (mapped but no paint) then continue up Monte Ardicara, stony grassy slope with cairn at summit and nice view, down to col to join main path to summit, shady beechwood again. Highpoint of broad limestone summit marked with simple metal cross in a heap of stones. Continued SE following MR route, adding variety and saving a little distance. Needs concentration to find path 707b descending NE from Croce col, then well marked to a spring with a signboard, then care needed to follow sparsely marked trail cross-slope NE before a clearer descent to an unpaved road, cross this (cairn) with clear trail then less obvious as it descends NE to the lower road, in last 300m I initially found paint marks but then diverged L on a bracken free line to join the unpaved road leading L back to trailhead.

2h up 10mins at summit, 1h down. Lovely start to day.
