Climbed Legnone on a Sunday - together with some 200 others, mostly Italian. Even though, we saw female Ibexes on the west ridge twice. Saw only half of the famed summit panorama due to clouds rolling in from the south-east
Climbed it together with my brother. This was our third attempt on the mountain. The two previous times we had turned around due to bad weather. But this time the mountain gave us an experience of a lifetime. Perfect conditions and beautiful panoramas all the way.
Indeed Legnone is a pearl of the alps :)
Climbed few times. Latest july 2011 with my friend stefanino. We ran up to the summit in less than 2h
From Rifugio Roccoli Lorla.Great panorama on Valtellina and Monte Disgrazia
great landscape: Gran Paradiso, Grivola, Monte Rosa, Aletschhorn; some clouds in Valtellina.
It was a very sunny day and the view was great.
from Ref. Roccoli dei Lorla
Nice day with wonderful panorama over Valtellina and Como and Lugano lake. With my friend Fabrizio.
The weather was very bad as often on this mount.
We started south of the mountain at Pagnona village. The ascent followed a little road,than along the south ridge which had snow and corniches at the end. The summit is a perfect lookout 2400m down to Como lake and to Monte Rosa etc. Descent was along west ridge, where many snow had remained. We traversed from Legnone hut beneath the mountain and had to climb another 100m to gain our ascent route back to the car.. Great trip!
With my friend Roby I reached this beautiful mountain.
The panorama from the top is fantastic!
One of my first climb. I was 6 y.old. I slept in tent with my parents to roccoli Lorla. I want to come to the top in the next future! Surely!!!
