Ascent Trip Report

From WSW, parking by sharp ritorno bend, signed trails shown on OpenStreetMap link to make a straightforward woodland ascent, passing a fossil site with good info board. Summit has clear view of lakes and across to today's second peak Generoso, also an old building serving as an open rufugio (with unattended stock of drinks available for €3 on honesty basis) and a locked chapel. This pleasant but seemingly unremarkable hill has got itself listed by UNESCO.
