Ovviamente se pensate di affrontare tale ascensione nel periodo estivo, potrete parcheggiare direttamente nel piazzale superiore, situato al Pian del Re.
“Ps. Sconsiglio vivamente l’ascesa dal Passo dei Luisas poi dal canale est in stagione estiva, perchè il canale è in buone condizioni quando è ricoperto di neve e il rischio valanghe è moderato.”
