Monte Sagro

By: Giampaolo Betta, Guide Alpine La Pietra
Area: Apennines, Group: Apuan Alps, Height: 1748m, Country: Italy, Region: Tuscany

Sagro is the mountain in the Apuan Alps that is the closest to the sea. From the sea it resembles a large grassy blade, and its color varies according to the seasons: green in spring, yellow in summer and autumn, white in winter. Actually, in the winter it isn't always pure white. Snow comes and goes depending on the snowfall, temperature, rainfall, wind, etc.. and it's therefore a mountain that needs to be climbed at just the right moment, and that quickly comes into condition after a snowfall. Given the modest height difference I recommend combining its two skiable slopes, the classic West Face normal route with the more difficult NW Face. The west side is usually docile and sunny, while the North-West Face, especially in the morning, contrasts with its shadows and severe nature that, despite the short, easily accessible slope, inspires a certain awe. Due to the proximity to the sea and to the angle of its lower slopes, the descent down the west face is particularly striking.
