Description

The Gran Paradiso, rising in the heart of the National Park, is the highest mountain completely inside the Italian boundary. It is a very popular mountain and thanks to the facility to climb it, many people go there for a first high altitude mountaineering experience.

Here is the program that I propose you!

Day 1
Meeting at the parking place for Rif. Chabod, few kilometers before Pont Valsavaranche, in the location Pravieux. After the check of the equipment we start the nice walk along the “royal trail” to the Chabod hut, where we overnight.
* Duration = 3 h (up)
* Positive height = 900m (up)

Day 2
Departure around 5AM depending on the period of the year. At the beginning an easy trail gives access to the moraines and the Lavacieau glacier. We put on crampons and the rope and we start to walk along that glacier up to the sattle where we join the route coming up from Vittorio Emanuele hut.
After the last easy section on the glacier we reach the beginning of the last ridge. Few more minutes of scrambling between boulders and we are on top of Gran Paradiso.
The descent is along the same itinerary.
* Duration = 4 1/2 h (up) / 5-6 h (down)
* Positive height = 1300m (up) / 2200m (down)
