My First Glacier Tour. With DAV Sektion Oberland.
After 1/3 of the route, the leading person of the group of 4 in front of us fell 5 to 10 meters in a huge and very deep crevasse, luckily saved by the other persons in the group. Because the glacier was in a rather dangerous condition and we were only a group of 2 we made the decision not to take any risk and to turn around together with the others who were walking in front of us. So for future climbers: WATCH OUT FOR CREVASSES !!
With a large group at the summit. Climb to the Casati is more difficult than the ascent to the summit!
Started late from Refuge dei Forni, arrived at 10a.m. at Refuge Casati ( from Pizzini to Casati : winter route with more than half meter of fresh snow ). Then sun and snow, snow and sun till the summit ridge where white clouds didn't allow me to take any picture from the summit.
A day of fog, we saw the sun only when we were almost at the peak. A beautiful view on the whole Ortles-Cevedale group.
Guided with a group of three others we went up the mountain in a white out. Difficult navigation on the relatively flat glacier below. Upper glacier crevasse gave us no problem. Very quiet to climb with bad weather: there is no body on the mountain then.
I've been on cevedale every year i start climbing. I regret i miss this year.The best route i climbed is the final part of 13cime but starting from branca hut.
1972 ascent (we were alone...) from Làrcher hut and Forcola pass, to NE summit, and back along the same way. In 1991, I started from Vioz hut, crossing P. de la Mare, Pta Ròsole, then getting to the top along the south ridge, ending the trip through la Mare glacier towards Larcher hut...which was closed for works on the structure, so I slept...in the chapel nearby where several berths had been arranged.
Second attempt to this mountain,but first on this route.Same problems to my boots.Broked half of my right sole,300 meters before the summit...!!!!!!!!!!!
We started early in the morning at the Schaubachhütte and went over the Suldenferner to the Eisseepass. From there of we went over the flat part of the Zufallferner till the last steep 150 meters and so on to the summit. The wheater was not very good, we had a white out on the top and not a nice view. We descented in rain back to Casati and from there back to Schaubachhütte over the Eisseepass.
On this day there was no good weather, only clouds. But when we reached the summit we had a beautiful view for a few minutes. It was great!
Wounderful days, no clouds. For me is the highest mountain reached.
we could not start as early as intendend from Casati hut because we had to wait for 3 of us:These guys had a car breakdown the day before and missed the last cablecar. The day was fine with clear sky and climbing Cevedale on the easy normal route was not a problem at all. But it was too late to go until Vioz hut that day what had been our plan. So we only reached Branca hut that afternoon.
Easy climb on snow field.
A nice trip with my 13 years old doughter to Cima Solda, rifugio Casati, Cevedale
I didn't like Passo del Lago Gelato
We climbed the normal route during a course.
Did Zufall-Cevedale traverse. Not difficult and probebly very nice view (when the are no clouds?!).
We started early in the morning at the Schaubachhütte and went over the Suldenferner to the Eisseepass. From there of we went over the flat part of the Zufallferner till the last steep 150 meters and so on to the summit. Wetter was very bad with lots of clouds and very hard wind which made it quite cold. Return was via the Casatihütte to Sulden.
