I remember ...

I was expecting something similar to the very close Fosso della Pigolara. instead we noticed that Nature can offer substantially different routes even in the same area.
Overall, the route was less aesthetic than Fosso della Pigolara, due to the absence of water in the "slides" part, but the harsh and wild environment gave us good emotions anyway.
