Ascent Trip Report

Best route from S is SSW ridge, signed path from 45.9052N, 9.1945E, limited parking at start.

Not realising this, I took Lee's route (not recommended!) but exited farther E onto wide trail following crest to summit. HP small rock at SE corner of fence with trig plaque just to E and the cross a bit further E. Could see the Lago stretching away to N but little else in dense haze.

SSW ridge path isn't signed from summit but is marked on OpenStreetMap and is good once found; partway down I passed a young chap strimming it! Strolled down tarmac road to Pian del Tivano crossroads where I'd started. 1h30 up, 1h down. Onward to Generoso
