The Ascent of Mt Ciampani - 2668 metres (Part 2)

The initial 900 metres of ascent led steeply up path number 1 to the aforementioned wired zone.

A further 400 metres of ascent saw us topping out on the broad summit with excellent views over much of the ground we have covered this week.

In between times the dark skies released a little of their contents, confirming that our decision to skip the new Col dei Bos via ferrata was a wise one.

Lunch on the summit preceded a gentle descent down the easy snow ramp known as path 11 (pictured) on which some of the younger members of the party reminded us as to the scarcity of snow in the UK.
