Climbed the Luseney from the new bivouac at the Valpelline side of the mountain. The bivouac is very beautiful and worth visiting. The normal route from this side is a only recommended in good conditions (not too warm and some snow).
Route Climbed: SE ridge (up) and N flank + col Luseney (down) Date Climbed: aug 1978
A nice spot for lonely quiet climbs. This traverse of the mountain was fine and interesting, mixing rock climb and glacier work. We hurried back, attacked by wasps, flies, horseflies, enraged by a forthcoming thunderstorm.
"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."
