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!
