|Date:||Sunday, August 6, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3704 ft / 1128 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom SW, drove the paved road to where it ends, presumably the former trailhead, now potholed but doable in a Fiat 500 with one spot near the end needing special care. Late pm so just a couple of hikers driven past looking a little bemused by a car this high up. Jogged up and down the gravel road/trail in 50 mins, fine view across lake to Giorgio and Generoso my previous 2 hills.
This made 4 for the day, time to head back to Malpensa for my delayed flight back to London after an excellent week in the Dolomites with Lee Newton; these last few solo as he had to head home a day early. Me to British Columbia if easyJet manage to get me back to Gatwick in a reasonable time...
