Piantobaldo - Presolana
"Piantobaldo" was the name Bruno "Camos” Tassi gave to Roby Piantoni. After the first two pitches shared with Orobic Ice the route continues for a total of 11 pitches and 600m to climb the NW Face of Presolana Occidentale. This is a very beautiful and demanding alpine outing.
From Bergamo reach Colere via Val Seriana and the Passo della Presolana. From Colere reach Rifugio Albani either by chairlift or on foot.
As for Orobic Ice since the first two pitches are the shared. From Rifugio Albaniascend to the Scagnello pass and then descend, keeping close to the face to reach the start of the route in circa 1 hour.
