Punta Fiames is a very attractive peak at the Western end of the chain of mountains forming the Pomagagnon Group. Two main routes, each with several variations, attain the summit: the "Via Commune" (regular route), and the "Spigolo Fiames," which follows the extremely attractive knife-edged SE arete directly to the summit.

Getting There 

Parking is near the Hospital at the base of Punta Fiames.
