Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1998

Not so sure about the precise date, but its near enough. At least the month and year are right.
Set out on a beautiful clear morning to climb the north-west ridge. Sat on the belay below pitch four two 60+ yr old Italian climbers who lived locally joined me whilst I belayed my companion. With some linguistic difficulties, they managed to communicate that they were worried about the weather. Incredulous I looked at the beautiful blue sky, with just a small cloud above the summit opposite. By the time I was leading pitch 5, the small cloud had swelled and left its peak across the valley heading our way. Retreat followed swiftly in a violent thunder storm, lightning striking the ground below us, with the combination of rain, lightning and thunder dislodging a hail of rock from the west face. The moral? when somebody has spent their entire life living at the foot of a mountain, listen when they tell you it's about to rain......even if the sun is shining.

in the mid 1980ies, IMHO a route starting at the 1st Sella Tower and continuing over the 2nd Sella Tower

With Fred and Tanya Spicker. Not done as often, so the rock isn't nearly so worn and polished.

It may was one of the slowes ascents ever ... There are many parties climbing the route an the first party was a VERY (!!!!) slow one. Needed 9 hours, but had to wait about 1 1/2 on a ledge at the upper part together with a spanish party.



Beside of this crowds: good climbing, nice route.
