The highest peak in Trentino 3558 m.

There are two ascents to the summit that have completely different characteristics.

From the south east, i.e. from the Segantini hut, climb up the Bocchetta del Monte Nero, where a ferrata has been set up in recent years, which, having left the snowfield, allows us to cross into the Val Nardis, from which we cross another small snowfield and with other sections of the ferrata we reach the Bivacco Orobica 3384 m. From here the summit comes into view and with a final effort you reach the cross.

From the west, i.e. from the Denza hut, the ascent is a purely mountaineering route on a glacier, which with a long and tiring roped progression takes us towards the summit via the Freshfield saddle. While this was once considered an easy climb, with the retreat of the glaciers it has become a normal route to be tackled with due precautions, as many crevasses have opened up and there are often stretches of live ice to overcome.
Both are very satisfying climbs, leading to a peak that is symbolic of Trentino!
