The most beautiful peak of the Val d’Ultimo

From Lana in the Val d’Adige along the entire Val d’Ultimo, driving up from Santa Gertrude - Sankt Gertraud to the Weissbrunn reservoir (1,900 m, hotel). Route 140 takes you to the Rifugio Canziani - Höchster Hütte and Lake Verde (2,561 m, 2 hours). After the Grünsee reservoir, we take route 139 which is a quick ascent to the lower edge of the glacier among rock and scree. This trail requires the use of rope, ice axe and crampons and keeping an eye out for crevasses, to reach the steep icy and slippery slope that will take you to the north ridge. A tiny pathway on the rocky saddle leads quickly to the peak (3,443 m; 3 hours from the refuge). The return is via the same route but beware of cold temperatures.
