Adamello North Face

By: Cain Olsen, Adamello Mountain Guides
Area: Rhaetian Alps, Group: Adamello - Presanella, Peak: Monte Adamello, Height: 2500- 3300m, Country: Italy

During the "White war" Val d'Avio was a fundamental route to furnish the mountain Front and it was incessantly used by the Alpine troops, so much so that it became one of the symbols of the conflict in the Alps. This outing leads directly beneath the imposing North face of Mount Adamello which hosts a selection of extremely famous alpine climbs, before descending down the spectacular Val d'Avio, past 5 dams built during the 1950's to create hydroelectic electricity.

GETTING THERE

Reach Passo Tonale.

ACCESS

Start from Rifugio Garibaldi

ROUTE

This outing leads right beneath the Adamello North face across the Passo del Lunedì (2650 metres), along the initial part of the Alta Via dell’Adamello (Adamello haute route), to the Pantano dell’Avio artificial dam, built to generate hydroelectric energy. From here, the trail heads down the Avio Valley towards the village of Temù. Although the journey ends here,  eyes and minds are enriched with historical memories and magnificent views.
