Description

Mount Adamello (3539 m) offers one of the most spectacular panoramic views in the Central Alps. Lying in the Lombardy region in Italy, in the province of Brescia, this pyramidal shape peak is the highest summit of the Adamello massif.

I invite you to join me on a 3-day traverse, climbing over the ridges of Mount Adamello and reaching its summit, continuing on the spectacular Pian di Neve glacier. This is the largest glacier in Italy, with over 18 square kilometres. We will come back following the famous Alta Via Nº1 of Adamello.

We will decide together a meeting point for our trip. Then, after following a steep path we will reach the Gnutti Hut on the first day and stay there for the night.

On the second day, we will reach the West ridge and climb through the via Terzulli to the top of the Monte Adamello. We will then follow the East ridge and cross the Passo degli inglesi and Passo degli italiani, climbing to the Passo Brizio and descending to the Garibaldi Hut. This day will take us about 8 to 9 hours. Finally, on the last day we will head towards the Passo Premassone, descending back to our car, for about 7 to 8 hours.

This trip offers a complete experience, with a combination of hiking and mountaineering, on the tracks of the World War I. In the course of the armed conflict, the Italian-Austrian armies had to fight a typical alpine war, on rocks and glaciers at over 3000 meters of altitude, and in very difficult weather conditions in this area.

So if you want to join this great traverse and reach the summit of Mount Adamello, send me a request. Check the date below and book your trip! I also offer a 3-day Adamello north face guided tour.

The day was great, we felt safe, Stefano was responsive to our request, our pace, etc. The only thing that could have been improved was the communication before getting to Italy. I had a hard time deciding on what was appropriate for the level of our group, gauge how long and how hard the different options were with the limited info that was given to me.
