Ferrari route alpamayo - any good news?

Postby bledl » Fri Dec 07, 2012 4:24 pm

Hey folks!

Anyone climbed the Ferrari route on Alpamayo in 2012 or heard about people climbing it? There were rumours the big cornice over the ferrari runnel broke away...

Thanx so far!

I climbed the French Direct in June this year. I don't remember seeing anything scary on top of the Ferrari. If it changes next year, just go for the direct. Good luck!
