Approach

 
M.Greco and the Normal route...
 
Pay attention to the fog. From Aremogna (1622 mt) direct to south toward the Vallone delle Gravare. Climb following the ski way. If the seat-lift is in operation it is possible to save around 40 minutes of walk. After a last, steep, slant yuo reach the Sella delle Gravare (1991 mt). It is entered, so, the Vallone Antone Rotondo. At the bottom of the valley you see the east slope of M.Greco.
In few minutes the Stazzo Antone Rotondo is reached.
You cross the lowland, climbing and going down the backs of old moraine. So you reach the bottom of M.Greco

Route Description

 
The bottom of the final slope...
 
Go toward north. You reach a steep gravelly slant, that in winter, if frozen can create some difficulties.
The north crest is reached . The inclination is reduced. (2143 mt)
At this point, overgone 100 plain metres , it is possible to follow the slope north, steep and delicate if frozen.
Or, to go toward the Valley Pistacchia and to climb an easy slope.

Essential Gear

Easy hike in the summer. Take a lot of water. The weather can be very hot!

In winter a fantastic ski randonee. The last slope can be iced. Ice-axe and harpoons can be necessary.
