Description of the route

Day one
Taking the ski-lift upwards, you will come to Gabiet at 2350 m. Go up the slopes for about 100 m of level difference, turn left along the trail of the summer pathway and you will come to the Indren mountain pastures at 2541 m. Pass the large plain and head up the clearly visible “eagle’s channel”, that can often require the use of crampons. You will come to the ruins of the Linty refuge 3030 m and, passing by the large moraine on the left, you will come to the Città di Mantova refuge at 3498 m.

Day two
Head up the Garstelet glacier on the right leaving the Gnifetti refuge on your left at 3647 m. You will come to the Piramide Vincent base, go round it on the left and, watching out for the numerous crevasses, you will reach a height of 4000 m. Turn right and along the easy northern slope you will come to the summit ridge and then the top.
