How to get there:
The key to this ascent is to find the beginning of road SP-48. This road starts at location N43.43816, E12.85040. Drive this road until location N43.44577, E12.76665, elevation near 950 meter. There is parking nearby and this place is a good trailhead. If you have a 4WD, you may continue along the dirt road that begins here. This road has some erosion, but is generally good. A high clearance 4WD should have no big problems to make it to the col north-west of the summit. The ascent is then essentially a drive-up.
Starting from the recommended trailhead, this is still an easy ascent with just a bit over 300 meter vertical ascent.
A quick summary of the peaks climbed in Italy 2022.
Follow the dirt road in some long switchbacks to the col. Take the nice trail starting from this col, that climbs to the shallow saddle between the two summit points. The southmost point has a cross. There is a good path from this saddle also to the north point which is a few meter higher.
I started at 1325. It took me 25 minutes to walk up the road to the saddle, then the easy trail to the summit cross. I spent about 10 minutes up there, including a short stroll across to the somewhat higher, but unmarked north summit. Descending directly north, I was back down in about 20 minutes.
