Mount Grivola - m 3,969

Aymavilles


Description of the route

Fully located in Valle d’Aosta, Grivola is the highest mountain in Italy after Gran Paradiso. Grivola (3,969 m.) is considered one of the most beautiful mountains in the Alps due to its pyramid shape, making it easy to spot from any angle. In fact, it has inspired poets who sung its praises and, seen from Saint-Pierre in the central Dora Baltea valley, appears truly enchanting.
A Valsavarenche mountaineer was the first to reach the summit in 1859, ascending from Valsavarenche: it was the Royal Hunting Reserve Guard Fedele Ambrogio Dayné who ascended with a party of four other non-Italian mountaineers. The Grivola summit, where a Cogne Alpine Guide Cross was planted, provides a thrilling view of the Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc massifs.
