Approach

The route start from Ref. Tita Secchi , reachable as described in the main page

Route Description

Leaving the refuge follow path N. 1 (well signed in the first part) until Blumone Pass (2550 mt. ca., 0h45' ) From here, turn to right following approx. the north ridge, helping yourself with hands for some steps, and following the red signals, up to the half of the ridge ascent, then turn to left and traverse under the East wall to reach the south ridge, passing trough a morenic circle. Then climb the south ridge until a little plan, just under the summit, where you can left your backpack before the last climb (pay attention to falling stones). Now go up for the last 100 mt. to reach sumit (1h45'- 2h from refuge) where you can see a good landscape on Adamello and Presolana groups.
Go down along the same way.

The last 100mt climb can be slightly dangerous due to stonefalls, expecially on overcrowded summer sundays.

Personal advice: take your helmet with you for safety reason, it can be useful in the steepest rock section.
