Pizzo Ruscada 2003 m Route archive

The summit is the highest point of the mountain range that separates Valle Onsernone from Centovalli. It is characterised by impressive slabs dropping steeply to Val Ribellasca. Thus, the mountain’s appearance is especially pretty from the south. Due to its low altitude ideal conditions for an ascension can be found in early spring and late fall. The magnificent panorama ranges from the north face of the Gridone massif to the Valais Alps.
