Quarta Torre on right
Setting from the S
Quarta Torre Bassa is one of the smaller towers in Cinque Torre. This route on its south face is short and pleasant. Nestled between the other towers it is somewhat protected from the wind and facing south it catches whatever sun is available making it a good choice on less than ideal days.
If one wants to continue to the top of Alta, it is an additional two pitches of the same grade.
Once in the Cinque Torri area, numerous trails
lead to the various towers.
