The 3,418 m high Cima Libera is situated at the border of Austria and Italy and is one of the main peaks of the Stubai Alps
Mt. Cima Libera is a more than 3,400 m high peak near the famous Mt. Pan di Zucchero and the Italian-Austrian border. It offers a great view as well as numerous possibilities for ascending the mountain from South Tyrol (Italy) as well as from Austria. The best view on the summit itself, however, offers Lake Grünausee (in the picture) near the Sulzenau Mountain Hut (2,191 m a.s.l.) along the Stubai High Route. The route from South Tyrol starts in the hamlet of Masseria in the Val Ridanna valley and takes first to the Gino Biasi al Bicchiere Mountain Hut (3,195 m a.s.l.).
Ice gear is not necessary, the 1-hour ascent leads to the south ridge of the secondary peak, and then in a north-westerly direction on the connecting ridge to the main peak of Mt. Cima Libera, or Wilder Freiger in German. Further possibilities for stops along this route are the Vedretta Piana and Vedretta Pendente Mountain Huts. Ascending from the north, that's to say from the Austrian side, you can take the path via the Nürnberg Mountain Hut (2,297 m a.s.l.). Mt. Cima Libera is separated from Mt. Cima del Prete and the 3,507 m high Pan di Zucchero, the highest peak of the Stubai Alps, only by the Pfaffennieder Wind Gap.
