A year characterized by plentiful of snow.
Very good climbing to the peak. Because of glacier's shrinking and lack of snow, we had to make some variation to the normal route in the last part.
We intended to do the normal route from Care Alto hut via Lares glacier. But because of pure steep ice on the slope to the NW ridge (that would have required a second ice axe) we could not climb directly. So we crossed the bergschrund very much right and reached the NW ridge very early, with difficulties at the beginning UIAA II-III. Later the ridge became more easy because there was some space between rock and ice that made it. Last meters to the summit cross were exposed again.
We start our (me, Carla and il Catena) climbing week with this wonderful peak. We arrive in 6 hours to Segala Bivaouac where other three climbers slept with us. The weather was sunny the morning but in the afternoon very cloudy, but it's summer weather. The day after no clouds and no wind. We arrived to the top in four hours and went down the SW ridge and the glacier. When we arrived to the parking in Val Borzago we were very satisfied. We were ready to change kind of rocks!!! From the granite of Adamello to limestone (?calcare) of Dolomiti di Brenta!!!
