Becca di Gay - North face - Right hand couloir

Date climbed: 06-06-2005
Grade: D-
Partner: Hans Groenendijk

A splendid face, right in front of the Borghi-bivouac. We climbed the right hand couloir. We had difficulties finding our way down and ended up descending the ice-fall.

Roccia Viva - North face

Date climbed: 08-06-2005
Grade: D
Partner: Hans Groenendijk

What a nice climb this is! From the bivouac climb onto the big snowledge and traverse it to the left. From there climb a couloir and end up underneathe the north face. This is marvoulous climbing and, if you're lucky, there is a small lake on the summit. The descent down the west face took a lot of time because there was little snow.

Aiguille du Plan - North face

Date climbed: 10-06-2005
Grade: D
Partner: Hans Groenendijk

We wanted to climb the pillar to see if we would be able to climb Frendo-pillar. Because there was still a lot of snow on the pillar we moved to slow and we decided to cancel the Frendo-pillar. We managed to get onto the pillar but descended after that.

In awe...

A lovely climb on easy to follow terrain. I enjoyed the climbing, although the rock is quite polished in places.
