due to its not difficult and not long routes it is considered a good start for climbers.
From its summit striking sights of the famous walls of this group (Badile and Cengalo) ,
but only two climbers can stay here at once (the top is very narrow)
Can be used for the most amusing middle difficulty route to Piz Badile, climbing two summits in the same day.
Getting ThereCommon access is from Valtellina (Italy)
Along the road from Colico to Sondrio, after the bridge on the Adda river you reach Ardenno
A narrow road brings you to S.Martino Val Masino and then, on the left till Bagni del Masino (car parking).
Starting from here in 3-4 hours you get to rif Gianetti - 2534m
Routes Overviewthe most famous, most climbed and most amusing is the Marimonti (South ridge)
not much difficult (3°/4° UIAA) - almost 400 m drop
various and early in good conditions to be climbed - a 50 m rope can be useful
the normal route rises along the SW wall and is a little easier than Marimonti (some passages of 3°+)
along this route the abseil anchors
the East wall is short (200 m) but very difficult and not amusing
other routes can be forgotten without problems :)
From Sertori summit, along the ESE ridge you can get the Pizzo Badile
a fantastic, large and very exposed ledge on the north side and another (higher) confortable ledge on south side
allow to avoid some difficult passes on the ridge blades
When To ClimbJune-September
Campingyou can put your tent everywhere on the meadows round Rifugio Gianetti,
if you like to carry it in your backpack along a path that gains about 1400 m in height :)
