Monte Tambura: la Carcaraia

By: Giampaolo Betta, White & Blue Mountain Guides
Area: Apennines, Group: Apuan Alps, Height: 1895m, Country: Italy, Region: Tuscany

Monte Tambura is certainly the easiest summit in the Apuan Alps. It's a sort of large  pyramid with a triangular base formed by three ridges and its three sides. The North Face is called Carcaraia and is less steep than the other two: being karst, it is virtually devoid of gullies but instead full of hollows and jumbled depressions that need to be entered and surmounted as best possible. In good snow conditions this is a highly respectable summit, the surrounding beautiful and the panorama, as usual, quite magnificent. Unfortunately Tambura is also famous for its high altitude quarry at Passo della Focolaccia which cut into the watershed ridge and consequently modified the Apuan "skyline". The proposed itinerary steers well clear of this mess. For those who prefer to confront with the pain of knowledge and understanding, I recommend the variantion ring route.
