Description

We start from the village of San Bernardino, you reach the campsite near the Restaurant-Hostel Genziana, continue along the passo road up to the hairpin bend that precedes Ca de Mucia. Here you cross the stream, go up towards La Leca and continue west with a cross that leads to the Mucia Glacier. Go up the glacier in a northwesterly direction until the beginning of the gully, where you will leave your skis; due to the melting of the glacier and possibly the little snow, you have to pay a lot of attention up to the gully. At this point continue on foot along the steep channel to the snowy ridge, from here continue easily to the summit.
