MONTE GRONA

HIKING AND ROCK CLIMBING AT MOUNT GRONA

 

Mount Grona (1376m) is a rocky peak overlooking the Rifugio Menaggio and the Breglia mountains. You can easily see it from all the central area of Como Lake.

From the refuge, you can reach the peak along the easy normal route, a panoramic path with a small leap of rock at the top. It is slightly exposed with some rocky areas, up to the cross.

 

 

The climbing routes on the southern peaks and the "Del Centenario" via ferrata are more challenging.

The path let you enjoy a view that stretches from the Alto Lario to Lecco, with the beautiful peninsula of Bellagio in the middle. All the eastern mountains of Lake Como, Mount Legnone, the Grigna, the Grignetta and the peaks of the Larian Triangle, stand out as a frame.

 

  

The resting place is the Rifugio Menaggio (1383 m), which is open almost all year round and can only be reached on foot from the Breglia Mounts above Menaggio (about 1,30 hours walk).

From the pass before the Mount Grona peak, proceed northwards following the easy and panoramic ridge up to the top of the Bregagno Mountain.
