Monte Fravort (2383m)
grows up, in the Lagorai mountain range
, between Valsugana (S) and Val dei Mocheni (E).
It looks very steep from each side and the access to the summit is normally done along the E5 path
that runs N and the S ridges.
Its name comes, probably, from german terms indicating the late-medieval extractive activities that were a feature of the area
Climbing it is easy and requiring only half a day, panorama from the summit is really great on the whole Lagorai group
The starting points from Valsugana
, are the small built-up areas of Pozza and Cinquevalli (Roncegno)
the Fravort summit 2383m.
