Total distance: 7.80km

Introduction
A medium-difficulty ski mountaineering route which takes you to the summit of one of the most beautiful peaks in Trentino, especially as it is so near to Lake Garda, making this excursion a route through unusual landscapes reminiscent of the Norwegian fjords. The mild temperatures from the lake also help to compact the snow covering, making this route safe just a short time after snowfall.

Locations
San Giacomo (1194m), Malga Campo (1635m), Bocca Poltrane (1831m), Monte Altissimo di Nago (2079m).

Itinerary
Starting out from the parking area near the cross-country skiing centre and Hotel San Giacomo, climb the open fields behind the Hotel north-westwards as far as the point at which the SAT 622 path enters the wood.
Follow the path through the wood and on the other side proceed along the road that cuts across the south-easterly slopes of Monte Altissimo, as far as Malga Campo.
Keeping the houses on your right, climb the slope in front of you in the direction of Bocca Paltrane. The slope gets steeper from here.
At Bocca Paltrane, bear left (south, south-west) and proceed along the broad ridge that leads to the summit of Monte Altissimo.
When you reach Rifugio Damiano Chiesa, pass behind it and climb the last few tens of metres up to the summit of Monte Altissimo. To the west and south-west, Lake Garda opens up before your eyes in all its majestic splendour.
Return along the ascent route.
