August 16th

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Moved the car 3 km up the valley because the guide book advised against starting in Castasegna – path no longer maintained.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.
