Route Climbed: Normal route from Rif. Vittorio Emanuele Date Climbed: september 1984 and august 1992  Sucess!

Of the first time I climbed the mountain I remember the crowd, on the trail and on the few rock steps. Luckily, the second time I was there it was after a storm, so there were very few people attempting the mountain in the cold conditions and fresh snow. The view was very nice, exteding towards Monviso and Argentera. In the second climb, in the night I thought I had lost the path, since I remembered the glacier starting just after the moraine: I was shocked in seeing how much it had retired in only a few years.

Started at the valley (Pont, 1960m) at about 7:15.

Didn’t get much further then the Becca di Montcorve due loose crampons.

I had to return at 12:30.

Very good experience and good weather too.

Route Climbed: Normal ascent from Rif. Victor Emmanuel Date Climbed: August 13th, 1993  Sucess!

With my family (wife and two sons, 18 and 15) we started after a sleepless night in Pont at 10:30 a.m., reaching comfortably the Victor Emmanuel hut and there deciding to make it to the top. As the day was long enough, we made it without major problems. (See also the trip report.)
