Wold ridge traverse above cogne - PD-









FATMAP difficulty grade



Crest and summit very little frequented, various factors constitute the little interest in this mountain: Length of the approaches, the quality of the very broken and even crumbled rock, as well as often covered by fine debris and the fact that the same is "suffocated" by the much higher and famous Tersiva.
