Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: August 14th, 2002
We ascended from Lago Naret over the E ridge. Just below the summit I felt an unusual sickness, which then lasted two more days. There was some fresh snow on the mountain, so on the descent over the NW slope quite some care was needed. Great panorama!
Route Climbed: ski traverse from Capanna Basodino to Bedretto valley Date Climbed: May 24th 1999
on a 3-day round trip through the area we climbed Cristallina after the traverse of Basodino. For reaching the Sfurdau lake west of Cristallina we had to cross a tunnel of the roads to the reservoir lakes. The summit ascent from NW side was steep but not difficult and had great firn snow. After Cristallina we crossed two passes and the Vallegia glacier in between to get back down to Bedretto valley at All'Aqua which was rather long and steep at the end.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
