Route Climbed: Tribulation Glacier route from Biv Pol Date Climbed: july 2004

Very long route. First day from valnontey 6-7, hours to Biv Pol. Never seen anyone else(only two of us). Second day started 4am across glacier to coll dell ape. While climbing up il roc to traverse into gully I fell off on very loose rock, snow and scree slope and was narrowly missed by a falling cornice (luckily the rope held when I fell ). Decided as a thunderstorm was approaching to retreat to hut. Spent another night in bivi with no food during massive storm, but was glad to be safe.

Decended to valnontey the next day which was very tiring (1500m decent with heavy packs)

If your going to do this route be very carefull of the traverse into the gully at il roc, we couldn't see a safe route.

Going back 2005 to the normal route on skis!.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: October, 2nd 2004  Sucess!

The so-called normal is not so normal! Now it is better to avoid "Schiena d'Asino" glacier and walk alongside left border of the valley.

Very hard ice! 6 hrs from Vittorio Emanuele hut to the top ...

*ALL* pages on this mountain are to be re-written!

Route Climbed: Normal from Chabod hut Date Climbed: 30 August 2004  Sucess!

Together with my brother. Very nice, sunny, but cold weather. Lucky enough we were one of the first groups at the top, because it can get crowded. Returned also by the Chabod hut, much more convenient, glacier and path, then along the other hut (Vit.Em.).
