Il monodito



Sports route of IV with a maximum of a passage of V. It runs along an articulated series of corners and chimneys. It constitutes a beautiful exercise of progression in opposition and adherence with a continuous search for balance. Few steps of force. However, it is a climb that is anything but trivial and should not be underestimated. Experience highly recommended to those who are beginning to take the first steps from the first team, perhaps being accompanied by a more experienced partner. In fact, the opening dates back to 1909 thanks to a handful of pioneering pioneers of Veneto mountaineering: Gino and Maria Carugati, Antonio Berti and Mariano Rossi.


Continue past Teolo towards Castelnuovo. Pass the sports field to the left and, once you reach the cemetery that remains on the right, park on the opposite side of the road. With the cemetery on the right, the Slope is directly opposite. We walk along the path, flanked to the left by a wooden parapet, which opens onto the parking lot. The path forks over a small saddle. On the right, go up to the Numbered Basse sector. Going straight on you go down the path that runs along the East Wall. Continue for a hundred meters until, looking up, you see the obvious fireplace at the base of which, in 2009, was placed a plaque in memory of the 100 years of the first daring ascension. From here the way starts.

First Climb:

Gino e Maria Carugati, Antonio Berti e Mariano Rossi (1909)


16-18 referrals, more lanyards and carabiners to extend the protections and keep the rope along a straight axis. Although we also have friends, we have not used them.


Return to the path on the right that leads to the numbered sector and parking
