Via invernale per raggiungere la vetta della Grigna Settentrionale e il rifugio Brioschi dal colle di Balisio

Abbastanza semplice e alla portata di tutti fino al bivacco Riva-Gerani ai Comolli, diventa molto impegnativa da questo punto vista la pendenza del "muro", e metterà alla prova la preparazione sia tecnica che atletica di chi la percorre.
La via in cresta è abbastanza semplice ma va affrontata con la dovuta cautela dipendentemente dalle condizioni della neve.

Solitamente nel periodo dello scioglimento della neve la via invernale viene chiusa a causa delle slavine che potrebbero verificarsi
