Climbing in Stura Valley: Bec della Soma (q. 2500)
8 mm

Info from D.Collino, November 2008

The route climbs a big slabby wall with two big larches on the left side of S.Bernolfo lake.

Ezio establishing the last pitch.

Approach: Drive along the Stura valley (towards Sambuco) and take the left fork at Pianche. Pass Bagni di Vinadio and continue towards S.Bernolfo. Reach a fork with a road sign to Rif. Laus (Rif. De Alexandri Foches): take the right fork (instead of the left one as shown). After a few bends you will reach the village of S.Bernolfo. Park on the left side of the road just below the village.
Walk up the slope and turn left to take a dirt road. Take the first path on the right, entering the woods; pass the refuge (about half an hour from parking lot) and reach the lake above. The refuge is open in the Summer and only at weekends in September.

Continue along the left side of the lake until a little wooden bridge: cross the bridge and scramble heading the aqueduct at the top of the alluvional fan.
