Demanding via ferrata over granite rocks in the secluded Val di Saviore
On the western edge of the Brenta Dolomites and in the east of Lombardy is the 2867 m high peak of Corno di Grevo. A wonderful via ferrata, away from the usual via ferrata areas, leads to the impressive summit. The via ferrata can be reached via the lonely Val di Saviore and is only suitable for experienced via ferrata climbers. Over a jagged granite ridge we usually climb the summit with friction climbing. From here we have a great view of the surrounding mountains, including the 3539 m high Adamello peak. On the descent we pass some old war positions and at the end it is worth stopping at the Rifugio Citta di Lissone.
In the upper valley floor there are beautiful picnic areas on the mountain meadows right by the river.
Our tour starts at the Malga Lincino. From here we follow the stepped path number 15 over steep serpentines upwards. After around 45 minutes we reach the Rifugio Citta di Lissone. Now we follow path number 24 towards Passo Forcel Rosso. The path is initially quite flat along a river, but after about five minutes we reach a sign where we keep left towards Via Ferrata Ermini Arosio. We follow the steep serpentines upwards until a small sign at an altitude of 2300 m shows us to the left to a notch. The entrance to the via ferrata is marked with a board. From here we can also see almost the entire course of the ridge and thus also the course of the via ferrata. From the start we follow the path over rough granite rock over the ridge with difficulty level C / D. The first section ends in a notch where we cross a very narrow crevice and then have to overcome an exposed crossing (C / D). After this exposed spot, it's a little less exposed, but not necessarily easier. We soon reach the pre-summit at 2380 m over a steep slab of difficulty D. Here we have the option of following the insured climb to the descent path or the unsecured ridge (1+) to the summit of Corno di Grevo.
The descent is via the pre-summit. Here we follow the initially still insured path (B) down. Later, the trail turns into an easy climb (1-2). We follow a steep gravel channel down and pass a position from the First World War. We descend over difficult, blocked walking terrain in a south-easterly direction to Passo Forcel Rosso. Here we follow path number 24 downhill. Soon we will find our ascent route again and follow it back to the parking lot.
all notes on protected areas
From Cedegole we follow the road eastwards into Val di Saviore. We cross the village of Valle and follow the steep, narrow road into Val di Saviore. The Magla Licino is the starting point of our tour.
Ihr weist ja ausdrücklich auf das Schutzgebiet hin. Allerdings sind in Schutzgebieten in Italien wie auch in BRD keine Drohnen-Flüge erlaubt. Ist natürlich nicht nur rechtlich problematisch, zumal so eine Webseite ja Vorbildfunktion haben sollte.
