/ In Praise of Ponte Brolla
The weather is much better then the high Alps.
It is very busy this weekend - just need to time the rest-days right!
Went there a couple of times when the weather crapped out in the Swiss alps. A completely different climate and like a piece of Italy in Switzerland. Interesting food. Always found it quite hot and humid. Whilst diverting, I have to say I didn't really get on with the gneiss (often slippery stuff). Seemed to be some great canoeing there too.
I climbed here about 15 years ago after getting washed out of the mountains - it was August and roasting. September has been much equable so far, though still quite warm.
