.. going on on the Sfulmini chain ...

south of Torre di Brenta a thin ridge full of pinnacles goes toward west and ends with a grey wall (Castei di Val Brenta) over the Rifugio Brentei esplanade.

On this ridge 3 main pinnacles give the possibility of fine, amusing and not long climbs.

These summit are, from East to West :
Torre Nardelli
Torre Bianchi
Torre Prati

at the base of Torre Prati a fine monolith : the Bimbo di Monaco

Getting There

for all climbs the starting point are Rifugio Alimonta and Rifugio Brentei

you can get it starting from Madonna di Campiglio (1515 m)
by car or taxi-service to Rifugio Valsinella (1513 m).
on foot : path 317 - to Rif. Casinei, path 318, 2 h walk to Brentei
then 1 more hour to reach the Alimonta Hut

Routes overview

There is no "normal route" on these towers ...
all climbs are at least difficult (4° UIAA)

the best way to amuse is, starting from Rifugio Brentei, to climb the West edge (Armani) of Torre Prati (150 m of fantastic climb) and make a complete cross along the ridge till the Bocchetta Alta degli Sfulmini.

if you are looking for something stronger, on the yellow and red SW wall the Navasa route (160 m - 6°, A), is for you :))

the South wall of Torre Nardelli gives another amusing climb with difficulties up to 5°

on the north side of the towers (180 m) some difficult routes on the walls while the chimneys are quite easier (3°) and useful for coming down

When To Climb

july - september
out of season not recommended - refuges are closed and the site is quite unhospital at night


if you use a tent near the Rifugio Brentei (a lot of wonderful meadows there) you'll get no problems at all
