Thanks to J. Vranjes for adding this peak.
Monte Gavia (3223 m) is a nice mountain that rises above the Gavia Pass on its north-west side. The route starts from the pass, directly from the Rifugio Bonetta (2652 m). The lower part of the route is a well maintained walking road, the last 200 meters are very steep and rocky. Less than 3 hours required from the pass. Gear: walking shoes, and helmet for the final part only. Car parking at the Gavia pass is free. Accommodation: apart from Rif. Bonetta there is also Rif. A. Berni (2545 m), very close down the rode towards S. Caterina Valfurva, and Biv. Linge (2289 m) on the south side of the mountain.
The access road from the south (from Ponte di Legno) is extraordinary narrow and not for large vehicles. The road from the north (from S. Caterina) is much less problematic.
Nearby peaks to climb: Pizzo Tresero (3594 m), Punta Pedranzini (3599 m), Cima Dosegu (3560 m), Punta S. Matteo (3678 m), M. Mantello (3517 m), Pizzo V. Umbrina (3438 m), Corno dei Tre Signori (3360 m).
