The first part is the hardest due to a certain lack of natural footholds and grips so that you must often climb using the metallic chain.
The second part and the last part are quite easy and after 1 hour you are on the summit at its end you can see the summital Cross of the Corno di Canzo occidentale 1.373 m.
