hoorickjRoute Climbed: Normal from Chabod Date Climbed: 7 july 2002  Sucess!


First 4000er, left at 4.30 and reached the summit at around 9.30. We did not get to the Madonna due to the amount of people on the mountain. Magnificent weather !

It was so cold (-18°C) that skins fell off the skis and we worked with tape. One of the best powder descents I ever have done!

started 4:00, it took us 5 hours to reach the top (party of three). While descending one of us slipped at the end of the glacier and was wounded so that we had to call a helicopter to take the injured to Aosta. Thanks to all helpers and the crew of the medical service.

LievenRoute Climbed: Rif. Chabod (ascend and descend) Date Climbed: 29/07/2001  Sucess!


We climbed the Gran Paradiso in two groups of five. We started at 4h30 and reached the summit at 9h15. We even had the possibility to go the Madonna. Only the last part on the summit ridge was difficult because of the crowd that want to go to the Madonna. Just this, it was my first, but certainly not last 4000 m peak.

"Via the normal route, a four hour hike up a snowfield. We were there on a cloudy and crowded day - there was a traffic jam on the summit! It seems everybody wanted to touch the statue of the Virgin Mary.

My first ice climbing experience! And my first 4000 meters! With a guide and two people from Belgium I have reached the peak from refuge Vittorio Emanuele in about five hours. Good weather but very very cold!
