The Crocetta pass in the Locana valley, in the region of Canavese, leads to the Grande valley, one of the Lanzo valleys. A long climb from Ceresole Reale, followed by a long descent to Pialpetta on the Stura river in Valgrande, marks this typical connection stage between two valleys.

    A bit tricky 2 weeks ago due to snow. More tricky was finding the track on the other side. Further down no problem on finding the track.
