Viewed from the upper Leventina, Fibbia seems to be part of the higher Lucendro summit. Indeed, tours to these summits are often combined. From Lucendro descend to Passo di Lucendro, from where you ascend a ridge to reach Fibbia. From Gotthardpass Fibbia is the easiest and most accessible summit. The first days after the opening of the road across the col see an uninterrupted line of skiers ascending the slopes of Fibbia. The ascent is in valleys and on ridges.
