|Samuli Mansikka||Route Climbed: Festigrat Date Climbed: 27th august 2003|
|An extremely beautyful ridge which I soloed in 4,5 hours from the hut. Ridge was in a quite icy condition, so I enjoyed some great frontpointing. |
Al the others took the normal route up, so I had fun time watching them leaving behind on long trail over the glacier. Nice views to both sides of the ridge!
Descended through the normal route.

|We (Gilbert, Luc and Myself) climbed the Dom by the normal route on a sunny day. We stayed at the summit for about one hour and enjoyed the views! We wanted to do the Festigrat but on the summit of the Festijoch we had some stomachproblems so we decided to do the normal route.Nice route anyway, heavyer than the normal route on Mont blanc.|

|We didn't use a rope for the ascent because we did not see the crevasses on the Festi glacier because it was so dark... On the Festi ridge rope is useless because you cannot hold your partner if he fells. So my partner (fitter than me) had to carry our rope the full 3160 m up to the top. Of course we used it for the descent over the normal glacier route|
