Monte Roisetta

difficulty: media-difficile - EE duration: 5h starting altitude: 2600 mt arrival altitude: 3334 mt

It ‘a more challenging walk (for good walkers), wich from the mountain hut following path n°up to cross Colle Croce 2801 m. After a shot descent to Lago Verde, 2723 m, the climb resumes along the entire long detrital strip that extends to the base of the ridge between Grand Tournalin and Roisetta. If you want you can avoid going down to Lago Verde, there is a path that allows you to stay at high altitude, without going down.

This leads to an altitude of 3200 m, where the crest is cut by a steep but short funnel-shaped channel; you go up it, to exit on the south side where in 5 minutes you arrive at the forerunner 3324 m. You walk along the traces of snowfield and for a short rocky ridge you reach the northern peak, as well as the culminating point.
