Punta San Matteo – 3768 m

Level Advanced

Duration 1 day

Zone Ortles Cevedale

Wonderful ski mountaineering itinerary, in high altitude and with a snowy ridge to climb in the end.

Technical description

From Passo di Gavia we climb along the Dosegu valley, to cross the homonym glacier and after a sequence of glacial slopes we reach the ridge. It’s the border that divides us from Valle dei Forni (around 3560 m of altitude). The last section is the ridge itself, which we cross using the crampons.
We come back to the starting point following the same path, in the opposite direction.
