Beautiful mountain rising in front of Bernina group, destination of many people.
The usual route leading to the top starts from Campo Moro dam (Lanzada - Valmalenco - Sondrio - Italy).
A marked path takes to Cristina hut ( an accomodation available for a 2 days-trip), close to magnificent Alpe Prabello (m.2100).
From here, a path takes through large meadows to the step slope and the summit of Cornetto (m.2800) near Scalino glacier.
You put your crampons and gain the SE ridge of the mountain, from this point with some easy scrambling you get to the top.
It takes about 4 hr. from Campo Moro (m.2000) to Pizzo Scalino (m.3323).

Getting There

FROM MILAN BY CAR: statal route "Vallassina" number 36 to Lecco and then to Colico (north side Como lake) and then Stelvio statal route to Morbegno, Sondrio. (two). From Sondrio only 15 Km to Chiesa Valmalenco and the 20 Km to Lanzada, Campo Franscia and campo Moro Dam.

FROM MILAN BY TRAIN: take a train in the Milan Central station destination Sondrio and then a bus to Chiesa Valmalenco (in summer to Campo Franscia).

When To Climb

The best season is between June and October. To lead Scalino peak it's necessary to use the crampons and the ice-axe. Is also recommended to climb on the rope (presence of crevasses on the path). Scalino is a classic ski route in winter and spring.
