While Philippe was on the slope flying his gliders, I left the beautiful but too popular (i.e. too crowded)  main hiking route of “Sentiero del Ventrar” and decided to attempt the Alta Via del Monte Baldo towards Punta Telegrafo.

 

It didn’t seem difficult but the walk soon became steeper and rougher and turned into a path on the mountain ridge. The fog started to kick in at around 2100m and the upper part of the mountain was clouded in the fog….  The idea of going down on the slippery rocky ridge was not at all funny so unfortunately I headed back down to where Philippe was flying..

 

 

 

The Italian does not seem to really care to tell hikers how high they hiked (i.e. not many signalization with the location point and the height) so I am not sure till which point I went up.
