Sogno d'Estate  - Punta Zanotti


Ended on 12 October 2008 by Gianfranco Caforio with the help of Caterina Mordeglia, Marco Gandolfo and Rita Safiulina, the route, of total difficulty TD, winds for about 320m on the N / E wall of Punta Zanotti in 6 rope lengths of 60 m each, except the fifth length of 20 m. (L1 and L2: V; L3: discontinuous, with final passage of VI; L4: V +; L5: VI-; L6: VI, it may be useful to use the bracket in the key passages, sometimes delicate rock) Rise time: h. 2.30 / 3.


From Rif. Zanotti the mountainous rocks facing the shelter on the left orographic side go back, heading directly towards the overhanging Punta Zanotti. Alternatively you can go down to take the path that leads to Mount Tenibres and Lake Mongioie and, leaving the latter at the bottom of our right, climb up the moraine debris at the base of the canal that cuts the tip in two ( 1 h and 1.30 h from the shelter respectively).


Equipped in modern style with 10 mm bolts. and parking chains. We recommend a normal mountaineering equipment. Use of the bracket in key steps could be useful; rock at times delicate.


Along the hiking trail that leads from P. Zanotti to the shelter (about 2 hours).
