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).
