Varied   Sucess!

This was my first outing with a new climbing partner. It went fairly well, though I certainly was the less fit of the party! The climb is quite varied. The rock sections can easily be soloed in my opinion, it never feels too exposed, though a fall will certainly be very bad. The descent took us much longer than the guide book says. I am assuming guidebook time is if you down climb most of the descent, which we did not.

Beautiful!  Sucess!

Second attempt, this time successful. Beautiful route! Climbing took way too long, but since it was a sunny day, then in late hours it got safer on the La Spedla traverse, it was in shadow already. Unfortunately Norbert Joos died there in the next day...

Biancograt  Sucess!

Awesome route. We had perfect weather and conditions. After the ascent, we slept in a tent about 100 vertical metres above the Marco e Rosa Hut.

no room at the inn  Sucess!

Fantastic night and day with Doug. Just because it is a Full moon doesn't mean it will be lighting your way :)

Nice climb in good circumstances  Sucess!

Very nice circumstances with hard frozen snow/firn on the ridge. Enjoyed the nice views.

Biancograt  Sucess!

Did the famous bianco ridge. Lots of snow fell during the summer so the old route variation to get onto the col where the ridge starts was possible and we did not have to use the klettersteig. I had high expectations, probably because the ridge looks nicer from a distance compared to when you are actually on it. In the end a nice climb on good rock. But the ridge is best appreciated from a distance, you probably have a great view from Piz Morteratsch. Decended the same day to Morteratsch, a very long day...

A great long route! Felt like many days' adventures packed into a single long one! Itinerary same as Peter K below.

Route Climbed: Biancograt  Sucess!

The Bianco ridge made me smile all the way up. Stunning view and definitely worth the name "Himmelsleiter"!
We came from the Tschierva Hut, descended via the Spallagrat to the Marco e Rosa Hut and continued the other day via the Piz Pal├╝ traverse to Diavolezza.
