From Cainallo to Northen Grigna peak

Description

The Northen Grigna peak is the highest of the Grigne group with its 2410 m. It is an arrival point of many itineraries and it offers a wonderful landscape on Alps and Prealps. In this listing we suggest the slope along the itinerary Cainallo , Bogani , Via della Ganda , Rifugio Broschi ( trail 25 ).

The start is at Alpe Cainallo ( about 1300 m ), where you can park your car ( paying ). In this first line of the path you have to pay attention to the trail signs because the first line is in common with the other trails , that leads to Mount Croce and Pilastro ( n. 23 ) and to Rifugio Bietti ( hut , n. 24 ). You have to follow always the trail sign Bogani – Brioschi n. 25 and , between beech and larch trees woods , rocky zones and some peaks and troughs , you reach the Moncodeno Alp ( 1680 m ) , the crossroad to the Glacier , and then Rifugio Bogani ( hut ) in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Once you have passed Bogani hut and the crossroad to Riva hut , you find a Virgin Mary in bronze on a rock and you enter in the Grignone screes. The path has a stone surface and it alternates uphill stretch with small turns. The last 100 m lines are the more challenging , very steep on smooth rocks. You can find some chains that could help you to climb without sliding, then you finally reach near Rifugio Brioschi ( hut ) and observation deck.

In the peak you can find a little Church in glass that is dedicated to St. Mary of the paths , the peak cross and a sort of cylinder that presents the names of the tops and of the locations that you can admire , its high and the direction in wich you have to see.

Travel time : about 3 hours

Difficulty : E ( Excursionist )

We suggest to do this itinerary in summer , after melting snow.

There is also a variant of this route that foresees to reach the peak walking through the Crest of Piancaformia ( trail 19 ). The crossroad is situated near Rifugio Bogani. The climb has a travel time of 3 hours and 30 , and an higher difficulty level EE ( Expert Excursionist ).
