On Sunday I made a visit to the high Tosco Emilian Apennines after a years forced absence. I chose to climb up the dramatically named "Valle dell'Inferno" (Hell Valley). It was the fist time with my new hiking team: Z7 + 24-200 and another Z7 + 14-30.

I climbed up to the floor of the Glacial Circus. As stuff was continuously falling down from the steep slopes with the melting snow I did not chance climbing the circus wall. There was a strange almost continuous rumble in the Circus.

As usual in the mountains, the weather was very changeable. I was pleasantly surprised that I was not too out of form for this short hike.

Somehow I missed this post last week. That looks like a challenging but beautiful hike, and the wild crocuses were quite a nice bonus. Well done on the photography.
