Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful trip on this lesser Majella peak. Up from Madonna dell'Altare mountain church there's a dirt track, then a wonderful ridge trail up to the summit. Interesting cloud formations - thick fog on one side of the ridge, clear skies on the other. We went back via ascent route until the dirt track, then tried to descent using I4 path which is not mantained and not visible any more.
