The Cresta Segantini is, IMHO, the most beautiful of the 4 main ridges of the Grignetta.
It is facing West and offers breathtaking views over Lake Como and the many pinnacles of this fantastic mountain.
Facing roughly south you can find the Cermenati ridge, that is the easiest path to the summit, that requires no alpinistic know-how and can be hiked also in winter.
It's only 700m of drop and it takes about 90 minutes to get to the summit (see also panoramas #4183, #4241 and #4371).
East of Cermenati there is the Sinigaglia ridge, that is more alpinistic.
Facing North you can find the Federazione ridge, that connects to the Grignone, with the superb Traversata Alta.
I had the luck to find a clean summer day for this hike on Segantini to Rifugio Rosalba and nearby summits with Stefano.
You won't believe it, but with two GPS and some knowledge of these places, we lost the path at our very first steps... too bad :D
