Integrale Westkante  Sucess!

The "Integrale Westkante" is very long alpine climb which combines three routes on the Westridge of the Ago di Sciora. First, you'll have to climb the "Teatro Dimitri", followed by the "Kasper Pillar" and the last part of the route follows the classic route along the West-ridge. We running belayed long parts and needed about 6 hours from the start to the summit. The last pitch is the crux (beautiful crack!). One has to descent on the Albigna side, which was long but ok.

Kasper Pillar  Sucess!

Not the real summit, but a pillar on the way to the summit. The best multi pitch I ever climbed. Flakes flakes and flakes. Only the abseils where hell due to the flakes :P Excellent route for practicing with mobile pro.

Punta Pioda  Sucess!

Climbed the Via Bramani(800m,5c/a0) on the Pioda. Great ambiance, although there are no outstanding pitches. The key passage was quite wet, but there were many pegs and bolts to climb on aid, which is probably necessary for the small roof section. The whole route took us 8 hours (14.30 at the summit), the rappeling (lower down the first, rappel as the second) took us 5 hours (back at 20.00 at the tent).
