Description

Leave Vittorio Emanuelle II Hut early morning.

Crossing rocky field, follow cairns towards the creek.

This might still be under the snow at early season.

After couple of steeper sections, you will arrive at the bottom of the glacier.

This can be deceiving so take it seriously.

Crampons and axes are good friend here.

Slowly but surely you will arrive to where the path from Chabod Refuge comes from your left.

Continue on steep, potentially icy ground to rocky summit.

Few bolt protected steps and you are with the statue of Madonna.
