Monte Fravort (2383m) grows up, in the Lagorai mountain range, between Valsugana (S) and Val dei Mocheni (E).
It looks very steep from each side and the access to the summit is normally done along the E5 path that runs N and the S ridges.
Its name comes, probably, from german terms indicating the late-medieval extractive activities that were a feature of the area
Climbing it is easy and requiring only half a day, panorama from the summit is really great on the whole Lagorai group
