We climbed this nice route in August last year and it was the same story, because some snow fell on higher parts of the mountain. Perhaps you had some more ice falling, but we were running up as well :)
If you don't mind, I attached this report also to the route description (http://www.summitpost.org/sass-dla-crusc-from-santa-croce-hospiz/981925).
Thanks for your comment, Vid.
It's a great route on a lovely mountain! We have had 3 visits to the area but the view from the Val Badia is always surprising.
And only five minutes late! I hope you were able to enjoy the celebratory dinner.
Yes, we made it down to tell everyone about the day, thanks.
You couldn't have missed this day for a mere barbeque! Your page reminds me I need to get back to explore more of the Dolomites.
Welcome to SP by the way! I see you have only just signed up recently. I hope we'll be seeing more from you in the future.
best wishes Mark
Thanks for your comments. I have been to the Dolomites about half a dozen times and each time I go, I find more things I want to come back and do!
Yes, this was my first post. I am going to try to put some more things up in the future.
I have just added an album of photos taken during a circuit of the Ruefispitze near Lech in Austria.
Welcome - and I just had a look at your album - nice place and some lovely photos
