The 3,273 m high Monte Magro mountain is very popular among hikers in summer and ski tourers in winter.
The Monte Magro mountain (Magerstein) is of exact equal height as the Collaspro mountain (Wildgall) and therefore also the third highest mountain of the Gruppo delle Vedrette di Ries mountain group. It is connected with the impressive Monte Nevoso, the second highest peak of the mountain group, by a ridge. From the Valle di Anterselva valley it can be admired in its entire size.
The Monte Magro, part of the Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park, was climbed for the first time in 1878. The route from Riva di Tures to the Rif. Roma mountain hut (Kasseler Hütte or Hochgallhütte) and across the north-east ridge to the summit is very popular both in summer and in winter. In winter the tour can be done by touring skis or snowshoes. The glacier is rather flat, although the mountain is more than three thousand metres high, it is not that difficult to climb. The Vedrette di Ries mountain hut in the municipality of Campo Tures offers an alternative route up on the Monte Magro.
On the peak, at more than 3,000 m asl. and amidst the Gruppo delle Vedrette di Ries group, home of the extreme mountain climber Hans Kammerlander, an unforgettable panoramic view awaits you on the famous peaks of the Dolomites.
