Brilliant  Sucess!

The most increadible time! Hardly anyone about, barely made it there and barely made it out again! Fabulous scenery, many peaks in the area to combine, snow in July, and a great day trip from the valley. Admittedly we came down the next day owing to blood letting in the car park, the Italian Army, an ambulance, and a suspicious hostel owner, but hey, that's impromptu adventures for you.

Route Climbed: direttissima sud alla vetta occidentale Date Climbed: 11 september 2004  Sucess!

very impressive rocky mountain, it's surprising to see some snow just 100 kilometers away from Roma.

the day I climbed it the normal route was over crowded, the direttissima sud looks much more interesting

Route Climbed: Rif.Franchetti and from Sella di Monte Aquila Date Climbed: 28 and 29 July 2001  Sucess!

Beautiful mountain , we arrived to the camp near the mountain at night and the sky was clear , so we could see the mountain against it quite clearly , really great feeling. The climb from both

sides is interesting , but through Monte Aquila its more challenging. We were three days in the area , but every day at exactly 13:30 the storm came , maybe its not always like this.

Vetta Occidentale: 1984 and 1995 by Normal route. May 2004 following Direttissima  Sucess!

This year I climbed with friends starting at 02:00 a.m with the aim at celebrating my birthday on the summit with a breakfast based on champagne and sandwiches; it was a foggy day with snow but really a nice birthday!

It was a pity but the fog didn't allow us to see the panorama!
