The primary purpose is to want to group all the work up to here executed and published waves have an organic picture of the situation, extrapolating from the same list of routine and intermingled of various Routes. This first part of the work dedicated to this discipline completely covers the whole territory of the Valle d'Aosta with all its valleys as well as the main walloons amongst the secondaries valleys, always personally paths in a dozen years with the use of this tool, not long returned "fashionable". Follow in the future of the more specific and targeted to a single trip, which will have the power to better analyze the same sport, which takes place always in contact and in the outdoors.
A small business is that you felt compelled to do to better frame this fascinating activity, that allows you to be able to go there too, where maybe walk, you can no longer proceed because of the height or the inconsistency of snow. Certainly the tool in today's plastic, also equipped with a small front crampon, offers several performance against the old and rudimentary wooden ties with rope; also from the point of view of weight that does not change here almost never, while the second was heavy greatly. Moreover, the lightness, plasticity and then the "articulation" of the new tool, now in vogue for more than twenty years, allow evolutions previously unknown. Its use is simple, but never trivial and requires adequate preparation, knowledge and technique of the same otherwise it can turn into a very dangerous tool, that lead to unpleasant consequences.
In fact, unlike the ski that can disengage automatically separating from the limbs, this always remains anchored to the same and produces an effect of screwing that makes it in practice uncontrollable body. Factor to be reckoned with and control rather closely. In case of a fall must try to stop immediately the same, possibly trying to avoid that type front but trying to fall with a look at the top or by placing your body sideways. Seem trivial considerations, but instead are fundamental; also because one must take into account that the event can occur. Please avoid too exposed slopes such as above rocky jumps or underlying icy gullies and steep couloir with soil, keeping in mind that the tool provides a good grip even on frozen slopes, but still has a limit. So do not overdo it ever in pushing the tool to the limit of its capabilities, while maintaining a margin of safety.
