il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: july 2014  Sucess!


Super conditions in the North Face at the end of July after about 2 weeks of bad / unstable weather! Rimaye was passing well and not a single spot of ice in the face.

There are 2 bomb proof belays on spits in the route. First half way in the goulotte on the right, second on the upper right of the goulotte.

Descent via normal route.

Normal route along the east couloir. Not very difficult but quite dangerous. Great view from the summit anyway.

JanGGervasutti Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2010


Awesome ice climb. In the company of my son Christoph and our local guide Eric, we started at 4:15 AM from the Cosmiques refuge. By the time we got to the rimaye (6:30) the snow was already dripping due to the prevalent hot weather. The crossing of the tiny snow bridges covering huge gaps was really nerve racking! Nevertheless, once on solid snow/ice in the couloir it was much safer (fortunately mostly in the shade) and an awesome climb until reaching the North face. We descended by the standard SE ridge, classified as PD but in my opinion more deserving of AD rating.

Went from Rif. Torino to the summit in about 2:45 hours. Despite lots of fresh snow and extremely hot weather, which made some sections a litte tricky, it was a great climb. Fantastic view from the summit!!
