A long hard day, cold and windy, but also my first alpine four-thousander. It was a pity not to have more time to enjoy the summit sights, but...

By the way: yes, I shared this climb and the rope with Rafa Bartolome (in case no-one had imagined so)

Reached the summit from Vittorio Emmanuele in 4,5 hours. Nice tour. Beautifaul environment. And alone on the summit with my climbing mate! Absolutely recommendable in spring, less people. We used snowshoes, that worked perfectly. So you don't need to be able to ski for this mountain in spring. See also: www.climbingtours.net

Claude MauguierRoute Climbed: normal Date Climbed: aug 28th 1986  Sucess!
Started from a bivouac place about 2900 m. high on the right bank of the glacier. Got first to the top that day, fine weather, a lot of people were to get there, as usual.


Stayed a while on Becca di Moncorvé, nearby and had a quiet nap...

andyg2Route Climbed: Tribulation Glacier route from Biv Pol Date Climbed: july 2004

Very long route. First day from valnontey 6-7, hours to Biv Pol. Never seen anyone else(only two of us). Second day started 4am across glacier to coll dell ape. While climbing up il roc to traverse into gully I fell off on very loose rock, snow and scree slope and was narrowly missed by a falling cornice (luckily the rope held when I fell ). Decided as a thunderstorm was approaching to retreat to hut. Spent another night in bivi with no food during massive storm, but was glad to be safe.

Decended to valnontey the next day which was very tiring (1500m decent with heavy packs)

If your going to do this route be very carefull of the traverse into the gully at il roc, we couldn't see a safe route.

Going back 2005 to the normal route on skis!.

We waited for several days (in vain) for the weather to clear in Chamonix. Finally we opted to go to the Italian side of the Mont Blanc massif, looking for better conditions. What a surprise: clear weather and great powder snow on this spectacular mountain!

The so-called normal is not so normal! Now it is better to avoid "Schiena d'Asino" glacier and walk alongside left border of the valley.



Very hard ice! 6 hrs from Vittorio Emanuele hut to the top ...

*ALL* pages on this mountain are to be re-written!



Ciao.

Together with my brother. Very nice, sunny, but cold weather. Lucky enough we were one of the first groups at the top, because it can get crowded. Returned also by the Chabod hut, much more convenient, glacier and path, then along the other hut (Vit.Em.).

My first 4000-er, it was a long trip, but at the end it was it all worth. We had good weather and a great view at the summit.
