As usual we missed the easy path up the other side and ended clawing our way up the clay slopes to the top. The ridge at the top separates the provinces of Parma and Reggio Emilia. There is a lovely view in both directions and we could easily pick out the aforementioned easy path just 50 yards away.
Walk back down road before crossing over into familiar territory. As you can see the village is overlooked by two castles. The nearest is Rossena and the other is the more famous Canossa.
