Cimetta Rossa is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.499m (8,198ft) above the sea level, located in the Valle d’Aosta region, in northwestern Italy.
The road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%. From Cimetta Rossa it is possible to admire Mount Cervino, Mount Rose and the coveted alpine summits of Champorcher: the Rosa dei Banchi and Mount Glacier.
