A secondary peak, a predominantly grassy esplanade with a flattened top and a unique trapezoidal shape, located in a slightly isolated position almost halfway between the green ridge marking the border and the Peralba massif. To the north-east it has a steep rock face and on its peak is a stone marker that indicates the border between Austria and Italy.

The hike is short, sunny, very busy and interesting for its beautiful views towards the Frohntal (with the village of St. Lorenzen) and the Chiadènis-Avanza group and for the memories of the First World War (earthworks, trenches). On the western flank is a barracks of the Finance Police, not in use for many decades.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Calvi refuge, reached using itinerary n. 24 (in the Walking section), continue along the path that, with fairly steep hairpin turns, reaches the Sesis pass. From here leaving the path that climbs to monte Peralba to the left, continue straight on (eastwards) along the path that, proceeding on the level, cuts the grassy ridge as far as a small saddle, called the “passo del Castello” (2318 m), located almost opposite monte Oregone. At a fork (taking the left-hand path leads to the Oregone pass) fork right along a path that heads towards the barracks and then, with some comfortable turns, reaches the modest but panoramic summit.

Return

Return to the refuge using the same itinerary.
