Becca di Luseney is one of the peaks of the Valpelline valley in Italy. At the end of the valley is the highest peak; Dent d'Herence a 4000-er This valley has no ski-resorts because its slopes are to steep and to rocky. The normal route follows a col at 3126m. The approach is either from the west( Pouillage) ,where you have to cross the only glacier on the mountain, or from the south, where you can bivouac in biv. Nebbia(2590m). From the col (above snow-line) the route continues, mainly over the glacier, and not to difficult.
