Photographer's Note

Pelvo Ciausis isn't a popular summit, as is the Valley of Bellino itself.
Stunning beauty in this pristine corner of the Cottian Alps, although a thick layer of fog/clouds was present between 1900m (6,235 ft) and 2600m (8,530 ft) of elevation.
From the summit, at 2732 m (8,963 ft), the view of peaks above the sea of clouds was just spectacular.
Monviso, tallest in this sector of the Alps, is at center in the background.

NOTE:
Moderate hike up to Colle Ciausis, some 10 minutes before the summit. From this point on, the ascent requires rock climbing skills with passages of 3rd grade (Italian scale).
