Sentiero alpinistico dei contrabbandieri

The trail Massimiliano Torti clinging to the dizzying walls of the western gardesana (Brescia side), was born in the early 900s for the need of the community of Pregasina, to find a connection with Limone, even before the panoramic west gardesana was built. After several attempts the too risky idea was abandoned. Later during the First World War it is said that the tracing, being the border area between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was used by smugglers for the exchange of tobacco from which it took its name. After the 70s it was equipped by local mountain guides and dedicated to Massimiliano Torti, a boy who died in Mont Blanc, thus becoming one of the most evocative and intriguing alpine itineraries in the area. Beware, it is not a via ferrata! Apart from a few short stretches equipped with metal ropes, the rest is a horizontal alpinistic route to be followed in a safe place with rope and suitable mountaineering equipment.

Il sentiero Massimiliano Torti abbarbicato sulle vertiginose pareti della gardesana ovest(lato bresciano),naque nei primi anni del 900 per necessità della comunità di Pregasina ,di trovare un collegamento con Limone ,ancora prima che fosse costruita la panoramica gardesana ovest. Dopo vari tentativi l'idea troppo azzardata venne abbandonata. In seguito durante la prima guerra mondiale si dice che il tracciolino,essendo quella zona di confine tra Italia ed impero austro ungarico,venne usato dai contrabbandieri per lo scambio di tabacco dai quali prese il nome. Dopo gli anni settanta venne attrezzato dalle guide alpine locali e dedicato a Massimiliano Torti ragazzo rivano morto in Monte Bianco,diventando così uno dei più suggestivi ed intriganti intinerari alpinistici della zona. Attenzione non è una via ferrata! a parte qualche breve tratto attrezzato a corda metallica per il resto è una via alpinistica in orizzontale da percorrere in conserva assicurata con corda e attrezzatura alpinistica adeguata.
