David P.Route Climbed: Biancograt Date Climbed: Sep. 2000  Sucess!

David P.

Climbed P. Bernina via the Biancograt route in two days from Pontresina, ending in Italy at a resevoir whose name escapes me. Vito, Walter, Pat, Piera and I left Pontresina late in the afternoon under light rain showers. We reached the hut before dark and Vito, Walter and I were up early the next day with the throngs of others and headed to the Biancograt ridge. The weather was marginal (which of course made it even more beautiful) and we were alone except one other party. On the snow ridge the wind was howling, the snow blowing. Higher up, the rock, which wasn't covered in verglas or snow, was for the most part excellent. We dropped off the ridge after the numerous ups and downs of passing small gendarmes and descended towards the Marco e Rosa hut. From the hut we descended a steepish couloir and gained a flatter glacier to get to the Marinelli hut. From this hut we hit the trail and high-tailed it to Pat and Piera who had expected us a few hours ealier.
