Comment (Automatic translation in english)

After leaving the car on the road to Acubona, where there is parking just before the transit ban, continue on foot up to the altitude 1756 meters. Here the path divides, allowing the hiker to vary the route between the outward and return journey. The path to the west of the river has many beautiful waterfalls and I recommend leaving it for the return, when there is more light to photograph them. Once you reach the Cascina de Vignun, continue along the white and blue posts along the grassy slopes where the trail's trail often struggles to show itself. Once you reach the altitude of 2382 meters, the path returns again clearly visible, but at the same time becomes even steeper. Thus the ridge is reached around the altitude of 2670 meters and the panorama opens up towards San Bernardino. From here the path continues remaining 2-5 meters below the ridge. There are also 2 small 1st grade passages, one of which is equipped with a chain to facilitate transit. After that the difficulty has passed and you can easily reach the summit along a grassy slope. As for the water, there is a fountain at an altitude of 1662 meters, as well as numerous branches present up to an altitude of about 2340 meters.
