Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2009
|We arrived at Susa early in the morning and the valley was covered by dark clouds. We started to hike in the fog but, after Refuge Cà d'Asti, a wonderful blue sky welcomed us. Summited in 3,30 hours from the parking under the Refuge la Riposa and basked in the sun for nearly 2 hours on the summit. |
Once back to La Riposa we got some tea and slices of different cakes ( apple pie, strudel, chocolate cake...). If you are around I suggest you to pay a visit there. The lady who manages the refuge is very nice and, obviously, a great cook.

|my second climb to this beautiful and "special" mountain!|
Who knows , that
- Roccialmelone's summit was climbed as earfy as 1357?
- On its top there's the highest church in Europe,
- a mess is regularly celebrated there (5th of august, - but also usually on sundays in summer and august 15th)
- the summit has already been reached in...2h15 from Susa (according to italian sources)
Definetly an easy walk to get up to it, as a warm up, an acclimatizing climb, a place to bring beginners, just for training or... for religious purposes!!! Everyone will be pleased ther with this italian touch!
Also pleasant avoiding the crowded summer period.

|I left at 6:00 the ca'dasti cabin en walked for about 2 hours to reach la crocetta. Because of the really bad weather i desided to return to te cabin. The path to la crocetta is a well marked trail and was not difficult at all, I don't know what the path to the summit is like.|
