Two days of rock and clouds, in the month of August at the heart of the Grand Sasso massif. This year I’d try to combine the three via ferratas – or better, equipped trails – with the normal routes to the top of Corno Piccolo (2,655 m) and the Eastern summit of Corno Grande (2,903 m).
Here a few impressions from this short trip to the Gran Sasso d’Italia and an overnight stay at the always hospitable Rifugio Franchetti:
1. Corno Piccolo – Via Ventricini & Via Danesi
2. Rifuggio Franchetti – 2,433 m (rifugiofranchetti.com)
3. Corno Grande – Via Ricci
