Started a bit abbove Aielli to hike along long switchbacks on a dirt road. Finally reached the karst plains and plateaus to the south of Sirente. Got fooled by our GPS track and freestyled up the mountain for most of the way. Wonderfull meadows with orchids and violets. The summit, however, was covered in fog so that we didn't see a bit of the famed view into its north face. Descended the same way, though on the proper trail this time.
