Cima Caset seen from Corno della Marogna
To the west of Lago di Garda
, to the south-west of Lago di Ledro
you will find a ridge of rocky limestone mountains, which stretches between Monte Corno
, which towers above Lago di Ledro
to Cima Caset
. It is home to the exposed, but easy Sentiero Attrezato Mora-Pellegrini
, an easy via ferrata which dates back to WW I times. During the war the front between Austia and Italy ran right through Valle di Ledro
with the northern side (another long ridge line) in Austrian hands while the southern side carried the fortifications of the Italian Alpini.
This southern side is exactly where Sentiero Mora-Pellegrini
runs with three named summits along its path, Monte Corno
, Cima Prubogn
and Cima Caset
. At 1748m and a little set off to the westthe latter is the second highest mountain on the ridge. Unlike its direct neighbours, which consist of numerous limestone towers and spires, Cima Caset is a mountain with two pyramid shaped summits. Sentiero Mora-Pellegrini
passes to the south of the summits but a short scramble will lead you to the western of the two.
There are old WW I positions on both summits, two concrete shelters which are in different states of decay. The one on the western is a cube with 2m length, the roof of which has caved in in parts. Still it is possible to climb to the top to take in the wonderful views towards the mountain groups in the north, where you can find the Brenta- and Adamello Groups.

See the following page, which describes the route west to east:
Sentiero Attrezato Mora-Pellegrin
Lillium martagon, turk's cap lily
There doesn't appear to be any red tape around here. However there are many protected plants like lillies or orchids in the area.
When to Climb
Best time is late summer and autumn. If tackled from the east Cima Caset should be possible in winter, too, either by tour skis or snowshoes. Sentiero Mora-Pellegrini isn't.
