Normal route  Sucess!

Nice route. Some people seemed to have difficulties crossing the still iced couloir and with moats also around larger boulders. Awesome summit view on the Calderone glacier, the peaks of Corno Grande and Pizzo Intermesoli.

North Face  Sucess!

I preferred to climb the easier Via Normale rather than Sivitilli Couloir, because of the risk of fog on the top and the trouble of find the descent route...

Many snow, but not so good: warm temperature even at dawn!

Bad conditions, failed attempt

We were out to climb Sivitilli couloir, but we had to give up because of an heavy snow-fall, when we were few meters under Ventricini trail...
Still winter conditions in Gran Sasso range, with a lot of hard/packed snow since an height of 1600/1700m on northern side... The Corno Piccolo north face is loaded with many snow, we hope we can climb it in the next weeks

On top  Sucess!

several times on top of our "flames of rock". Great summit, very pleasant ascent on via ferrata Ventricini and Danesi.
