Description 

Gorro Frigi is the tallest & most impressive-looking of the Gorros towers. It is home to several classic routes, some very well protected, and others offering a more alpine experience. There is a fully equipped Via Ferrata on the back side (actually the South side) of Gorro Frigi, making the descent relatively plush, while offering something interesting for the casual adventurer. The iron cross bolted to the summit is a popular hiking objective.

The rock is generally very good, but there are some loose cobbles here & there, and much of the rock is covered in lichen. Route-finding can be difficult on these faces, as there are few natural features, and several of the newer lines criss-cross the more historic lines. Some of these new routes have painted hangers in an attempt to alleviate confusion. Judge for yourself if this technique is effective.


Getting There 

Gorro Frigi is the furthest North of the Gorros formations. When viewed from the Monastery, it is the furthest right. Follow the Tourist Trail north until below the route of choice.
