Itinerary: Bondo – Bocchetta della Tegiola – Passo Porcellizzo – Rifugio Gianetti (CAI)
Distance: 18,8 km
Time: 8 hours (plus 1 hour 40 minutes for the stops)
Vertical distance: 2620 m uphill; 910 m downhill
Cloudy all day, just a few minutes sunshine; light rain from 2.30 p. m . onwards. Fog above about 2500 m.
Moved the car 3 km up the valley because the guide book advised against starting in Castasegna – path no longer maintained. So we started at 8.30 at Bondo (820 m) for the long climb of 1670 m to the Tegiola pass. All the way we had many boulder fields and stony paths. Highest pass was the Porcellizzo at 2961 m. Arrived very wet at the hut just after 6 p.m. Hoping for better weather tomorrow.
