PLOT 1: reaching 3000m a.s.l.
Reaching Cima Grostè (2989 m), the northernmost peak in the central part of the Brenta Dolomites, is not for everyone.
Along the climb that leads to the peak, the landscape becomes more and more unique, offering breathtaking views …
Up here we chose to place the most high-altitude and panoramic Plot of all. A splendid terrace that offers a view that goes far beyond the boundaries of the Park. From up here, in addition to the tonal groups of Adamello and Presanella, the eye caresses the Ortels-Cevedale Group and some groups of the Eastern Dolomites. The Cima Grostè, with high vertical walls and layers of Dolomia, well represents the spectacular typical forms of the Dolomite landscape. At the base, extended Dolomia floors, screes and expanses of large blocks. On the summit, at almost 3000m asl, large flat spaces alternate with more fractured and rugged areas, which accompany the climber along the last meters of altitude that separate him from the “summit book”. The sediments eroded and transported by atmospheric agents accumulate among the rocky ravines, creating that bit of sufficient ground for life.
The entire surface of the Plot falls into a typology of habitat which, due to its value and uniqueness has become part of the “Rete Natura 2000“. A network of areas recognized by the European Union as strategic for the conservation of biodiversity at a supra-national level.
The sensors positioned on the peak constantly monitor the trend of air temperature and of the most superficial layers of the soil. Below is a graph of the average daily temperatures recorded from the day of installation of the instrumentation (27.07.2018) up to the last data collection (09.27.2018).
