Third highest peak in the
Appennini, easy in the good season (just a one-day walk), in the winter is very nice to be climbed with skies and crampons, when the climb will require at least two days; there is a good refuge almost half way always open.
The mountain, while not certainly beautiful as the Alps, is interesting for its loneliness, for the big (Appenins scale) plateaus
surrounding it, for beautiful woods and for the Duchessa Lake, 1780 m. high.
