Tresenta - Gran Paradiso - Mont Blanc trip

In July of 2006 we took a nice trip in the Western Alps. Firstly we tried and passed two italian summits in Gran Paradiso Nation Park. We climbed Tresenta and after that Gran Paradiso itself on a variant of Normal Route from Rifugio Vittorio Emanuelle all along on the glacier and not on the rocky ridge.

If you know this place you know camping is forbidden in the whole Gran Paradiso National Park. Altough we knew this rule we stayed in tent because the refuge was full and in this case you can stay in tent around the house.

Comments for video

First: Sorry for Hungarian language. Originally it isn't made for Summitpost but after that I thought You might enjoy it.

What we are talking about in the 2nd part of video:
So...
- We were a little bit tired. :-)
- We are very cool guys because we jumped across the wide crevass and didn't climbed across on a ladder. :-)))

In the last part you can see a strange stage because it seems we are just jumping in the snow like idiots. :-) To tell the truth there was a 2.5m wide and 20-30m deep crevass and we jumped across it.
