you could make a fine trip crossing the ridge from Monte Bar to Garzirola and coming down to Colle San Lucio


Thanks, I'll research it a bit more tonight!
Edit: Nice, that's only 18.6km's away! I could even walk that :)

Gabriele, I've looked into this and I think I've located Val Colla (red dot). I haven't figured out yet where I could take a bus, but I'd figure it out once I'm there. From there, would it be hard to find the route up Gazirolla?

I have however no idea where Monta Bar or Colle San Lucio (is that where the Rifugio San Lucio is?) are located. Could you point me in the right direction (North, West,...)? How hard do you think this trip would be and would it take me about two days?

the starting point is Corticiasca - up to monte Bar - ridge to Garzirola - down (S) to S.Lucio - back on foot to Bogno or Scareglia
I did it with skis 5 or 6 times some years ago, starting from Milan at 7 in the morning, we used to take here the learners at the first lesson of my ski-mountaneering school
If you like it you could also, from Colle S.Lucio, follow the ridge to gain the Cima di Foiorina

there's a refuge on Monte Bar :
info@capannamontebar.ch

here the timetable of the postal service from Lugano to Corticiasca just enter the starting hour

If you really don't have much time and want to do a nice hike close to town, check out my SP page San Salvatore. There is suppose to be a Via Ferrata there too!
Lugano is a beautiful place. Enjoy it. cheers.

Ok, maybe I should've posted a new thread. I'm no longer looking for things to do. This time I won't have any time, except for a little bit after work. And that time will be used to climb san salvatore.

@ Novak, I know what you meant, I just didn't understand why this came up... .
