Normal route from Vizzavona  Sucess!

Hot day with a clear sky and fantastic view from a lonely summit.

From Col Vizzavona  Sucess!

Foggy and rainy autumn day... orientation in the summit zone was not that easy, the chimney wet and the terrace next to it icy.
So although this technically is straightforward, the climb was interesting ;-)

normal route and traverse  Sucess!

I went there solo 2000 and returned 2003 doing this time the traverse, climbing from vizzavona forest and descending scala on my second visit (snow stays there a bit longer).

It's a long though easy and interesting climb with wonderful view.

One of the big 5 of Corsica

As part of my GR20  Sucess!

I left my backpack near the GR20 trail. It had been a though climb up and beyond the Cascade des Anglais. It looks like a quick summit from the ridge. However, the trail doesn't go up to the ridge. So it still was a two hours hike up and down from the GR20 trail. Clear views, sunny day. I continued afterwards to the refuge de l'Onda.

Nice mountain , and really beautiful surrounding area , especially vicinity of Cascades Anglais. Must return there some other time , because we have nearly no view at all from the summit.

Route Climbed: GR20 via Muratello Date Climbed: May 2002  Sucess!

Nice day but the clouds caught up with us. Very stormy on top, we were glad to get back down again, since we weren't equipped for storms at freezing temperatures. At sea level it was really HOT! The ascent is very nice, especially the last couple of meters since you have to climb (Grade II).
