Stories, information and comments from Castelmonte climbers
Story by Kip Kelland from Udine, Italy, submitted on 07/09/2013
Today was hot and sticky. Not too oppressive but surprisingly close for September. It's a few years since I did the classic climb to Castemonte from Carraria because there3 are others which are either quieter andprettier or steeper and more chsllenging. So today took me by surprise - I'd forgotten how irregular the climb is. It's one short steepish ramp after another. Nothing really hard, but on a hot, stuffy day it's pretty energy sapping. But the views east into Slovenia once you reach the top are wonderful. So don't stop at the main car park (Castelmonte is an important pilgrimage location in this area) go on up to the the next small car park, or, even better, go right up to the top up the final cobbled ramp and enjoy the view across the whole of Friuli towards the west. The best way down is a) if you don't have much time, go back down through the woods to Albana or b) keep going east towards the border with Slovenia and discover the amazing natural amphitheatre around the Drenchia area. It makes the ride much longer but well worth it. You can either cross the border into Slovenia at Rifugio Solarie or descend towards Clodig and then go on to Cividale del Friuli which is the start for the classic climb up to Castelmonte.
