Today’s trek is a very demanding, we are at Cava de’ Tirreni the north door of the Amalfi Coast, the summit to climb is that of Mount Finestra 1138 meters, vertical mountain you could say, since thanks to its high difference in height in less than 2 km exceeds 750 meters, once a year is run by athletes for an uphill race called “Vertikal Monte Finestra“. So as you will surely understand today it will be hard, but do not be frightened once you reach the top you will be rewarded with a great 360 ° spectacular view of all the Lattari Mountains, Vesuvius, the Picentini Mountains Alburni and of course on our Amalfi Coast.
The climb can be done from several sides, certainly the most interesting is the path C.A.I. 308a also known as Sergio Rosa in memory of a climber who in the 40’s of last century lost his life climbing the high walls under the peak. The path is exposed in some places and in some we need the help of hands, but the views are breathtaking. Once on the summit we could enjoy a good coffee taking advantage of the hospitality of the bivouac at the top overlooking the Gulf of Salerno.
