becca vanetta

Becca vannetta is not a very high summit (3361m) but on the summit you have an amazing view on the mountains around you. Also the lake place de moulin (1968m) is good visible.

Synonyms for the becca vannetta are: becca della vanette or Bce de la vanette. The mountain is situated in the pennine alps. Near the boundary of swiss and Italy. The mountain itself is in Italy. The becca vannette is sporadic climbed so your almost sure alone on top of the summit.

You can combine this trip with other trips from refugio nacamuli. Like mont brulé, punta kurz, Gran becca D'oren.

The trip is also possible in winter.

becca vanetta route

The route I have climbed is the "standard" route from rifugio nacamuli. From there you walk toward the col collon, but before reaching the col collon change your direction southward to the becca vanetta. Crampons and a light rope advised. about 3 hours to the summit. (F-)

In winter this is also a skiroute. And from the summit of the becca vanetta is also a skialpinismo route to braoulé (the village) over the glacier du mont brulé. (but I haven't walked it so I can't give detailed information) (PD+/S4)
