Informazioni aggiuntive

The Ongania ridge is a very interesting and fun mountaineering climb a few steps from the city of Lecco, ideal in summer to escape from the city heat but also spectacular in late winter for a climb with ice ax and crampons. The ridge can be reached by taking the ski lifts (also open in summer) that lead to the Piani di Bobbio and in just over 45 minutes you reach the ridge that leads to the top of Zucco di Pesciola at 2092 m above sea level. The route is mountaineering, with little protection on site and our guides will be able to accompany you and teach you some tricks of the trade to better manage this type of climb.

You don't need any particular experience to climb this ridge but we recommend a minimum level of climbing (grade III) and the habit of walking on rocky mountain paths.
