a 7000 x 650 pixels pano of the Alps from the summit
During the First World War it was an important garrison along the "linea Cadorna", a complex and long trench system crossing the Prealpi Lombarde from Verbano (Lago Maggiore) to Lario (Lago di Como).
Once at colma di Prabello (the saddle between Sasso Gordona and Poncione di Cabbio) you must turn to the left (wooden marks) toward the Sasso Gordona.
The path starts immediately steep and the last 100m (in elevation), over the Linea Cadorna, are really very steep and somewhere a little exposed but with some equipment : to be avoided if wet of iced (very slippery, maybe dangerous)
Difference in elevation about 500m, time required 3 hours up and down
