For this second climb after 12 years we reversed the route to climb across Pizzo delle Viene before tackling Monte Cimone. We saw around 200 ibexes and for the descent had to hike right through the huge herd. Amazing!
Climbed Monte Cimone on a foggy day with only view weather windows and even fewer views. Met a couple of ibexes (mother and daughter) on the east ridge.
We started from Pecol,very good cheese by the way. The fog,multitude of mountain goats and wildness,that is what I remember.There were some people at the bivouac,going down Norina path.It looks dramatic...next time.
We had fine weather. Some clouds and fog during the ascent but the view was fine.
