Thanks to sajames for adding this peak.
Pizzo Carbonara is located at the center of the Madonie mountain range in northern-central Sicily, the highest mountain of its range and the second highest of the island. It is a huge block of limestone rock, surrounded by deep valleys except on its southern and south-western sides were the passes at Piano Battaglia and Portella Colla reach 1605m and 1428m respectively. The whole Carbonara Massif – for such it is – rises slowly southwards out of the plain between the towns of Isnello and Castelbuono and thus folms a huge sloped high plateau, which to the south-west ends abruptly, dropping to the above mentioned passes.
