Fantastic tour to Cristallina 2912m.
my picture are here: Link to Cristallina 2912m
We ascended from Lago Naret over the E ridge. Just below the summit I felt an unusual sickness, which then lasted two more days. There was some fresh snow on the mountain, so on the descent over the NW slope quite some care was needed. Great panorama!
on a 3-day round trip through the area we climbed Cristallina after the traverse of Basodino. For reaching the Sfurdau lake west of Cristallina we had to cross a tunnel of the roads to the reservoir lakes. The summit ascent from NW side was steep but not difficult and had great firn snow. After Cristallina we crossed two passes and the Vallegia glacier in between to get back down to Bedretto valley at All'Aqua which was rather long and steep at the end.
Beautiful mountain and surrounding.
My first ski mountain in the alps!
It's a good mountain to start with, provided avalanche conditions are favourable.
