First Sella Tower  Sucess!

Kessler and I met Eitenne in Canazei and headed for the First Sella Tower. It was a really spectacular climb and the best we ended up doing in the Alps. The weather was beautiful as well.

The last pitch was the hardest and was really polished. I struggled on that one! Kessler found it easier. It was a great climb and the views were great too. The descent wasn't so bad either.

Strangely we saw a giant centipede at the base of the tower. I didn't think they lived up this high.

1st and 2nd Sella Tower

Dihedral Arrow on the first tower and dihedral Kostner on the second. Beautiful spring day with very few people and lots of snow

Trenker  Sucess!

Mary and I climbed this route on a questionable weather day when the cumuli were already building at 9AM. Really fun climb, challenging at the crux, and a nice summit. Descent was more involved than I expected, but still quite straightforward.

Trenker & Tissi  Sucess!

Trenker (Aug. 23, 2008): Short route but it was drizzling (at first, then it was pouring). Most memorable thing about it was the very polished rock midway up.

Tissi (Jul. 5, 2010): Well off route on the final 2 pitches & went left to the ridge route. Did not like the lower 2/3rds -- wide & polished turning what used to be a nice stemming corner (probably) into a polished OW fight (nasty IMHO).
