Stories, information and comments from Etna - Rifugio Sapienza climbers
Story by Henk de Grooth from Zwolle, The Netherlands, submitted on 03/06/2014
Nice climb, done with local mountainbike (unfortunately only small frame sizes available at Nicolosi). Road conditions are good, slope is pretty regular. Views are splendid! Did the climb in the morning; some traffic, mosty touring busses, if you want to avoid them, start early at 7:30AM. Possible to climb further on the off-road track under the skilift, would be a tough job but it''s not impossible. At the refugio are plenty of supplies.
