"Climbing Monte Viso (MonViso) 3841m I climbed MonViso on my birthday 28 sep 2018 which turned out to be a spectacular warm autumn day with exceptional clear skies. I did the normal (sud) route which is indeed just a scramble albeit a long exposed one and subject to objective dangers such as rockfall. The SE ridge is shorter and more attractive in many ways. However it involves some grade 3 climbing and good rope work is required. We parked in Plan de Rey in Crissolo which is the end of the narrow road in the Valley del Po. There is a charge of 10 Euros a day for parking here and there se" - Monte Viso, chrispatient, Sep 28, 2018

"Tuesday 7th August 2018. An ascent of Punta Colomion 2054m/37m, Cottian Alps, from Pian del Sole, above Bardonecchia, Piedmonte, Italy. 9.5km, with 550m of ascent. 2 hours 10mins. For a change of scene, and seeking better weather, we took a trip into Italy over the Col de Montgenévre (1849m) (see at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Col_de_Montgen%C3%A8vre) to the town of Bardonecchia. A short chairlift (10 Euros each) sped us up from the recreational part of the town to the grassy plateau of Pian del Sole (1557m), a sunny spot living up to its name. From there, a grit track wound up thr" - Punta Colomion, marktrengove, Aug 7, 2018
