Route is a much easier version of Bocchi's Route 5. It is a
clockwise circuit via Foce di Giovo with an optional
scramble from here to the summit of Uccello & back. It
uses a traverse path on the SW side of Uccello rather than the
Uccello ridge chosen by Bocchi.
Leave Vinca on Path 190,
climbing N for 1 mi to reach Path 191 turning off to the R
(Senteiro Piotti). Turn R here and traverse the SW side of
Uccello on the Senteiro Piotti with wonderful views over Vinca
and the mountains behind.
After 2.1 mi reach a fork in the
traverse, 191 and 191b. Do not follow 191. It
goes left and starts to climb. It becomes a serious scramble
which ascends to Il Giovetto, part way up the Scramble onto
Follow Path191b which
descends slightly to join path 175 ascending from Vinca. Turn
L onto 175, ascending more gently to Foce di Giovo.
From here make a sharp L turn to take

This requires several small scrambling pitches but they are

the same route. From here follow Path 175 W back to Vinca,
joining Path 38 after 1.5 mi for the final 0.8 mi into the
