Via the West Ridge (Normal route) Crast'Agüzza 3869 m
- PD, 2a
- 2 h, 300 m
- 50 m
Relatively easy alpine tour, to a beautiful but not often visited summit.
From Rifugio Marco e Rosa (3597 m), cross the glacier plateau and arc round onto the northern flank of the Crast'Agüzza; ascend diagonally (southwards), initially over firn or ice, then over rock and scree, up to a kind of shoulder at the foot of the west ridge. The first upswing can be climbed directly or bypassed on the south (Italian) side. Thereafter follow the ridge, or just left (north) of it, to the highest point.
Follow the route of ascent.
