If solo you should have climbed it by the Spalla ridge, right? I have also sweet memories but also a very bad one from this range. I must often think about Cyrill who died on Piz Palü.
Wishing you a good season and safe climb!
Yes I climbed Bernina from the Italian side, from Franscia, via rifugio Marinelli, the steep coulior next to Crast'Agüzza (the route in the rocks where too icy) and finally the Spalla Ridge. Great tour!
I read about the tragic accident with Cyrill on Piz Palü. Climbing accidents are of course always terrible things.
