The departure of the "classic" way is in the heart of the town of Varzi, in the province of Pavia. From the car park overlooking the Staffora, follow the signs towards the bridge, then the path on the left. A wide path, first level, then of variable slope, will take you to Monteforte and then to Castellaro, periodically intersecting the asphalted provincial road and the local cart. At the end of the village, continue along a wide dirt road surrounded by woods until you meet the border between Lombardy and Piedmont. On the border line we continue on the ridge that will accompany us until 1700m of Mount Chiappo, where at the bar / shelter it is possible to have a rest before the descent to the Capanna di Cosola where the first stage ends with the overnight stay.
