Really, really beautiful picture. Photo of the week if it were up to me!
I agree with Johan.
Indeed it is and it is akin to La Roccia Viva!
May add my agreement ?
Great picture of a most beautiful mountain, Antonio.
Is the Tour des Jorasses the one in the lower right corner?
Are the Rochers Whymper at the upper left? Thanks!
On the upper left you've the summit of the Pt. Whymper, with the Rochers Whymper reaching it. Superimposed, you've the top of the Tour des Jorasses. The pillar on the lower righr is the summit of the so called Ghiglione Pillar, where a fine but rather neglected route goes.
Thanks! I was misled by that beautiful dihedral, which I thought may be the one of the Calcagno route. Is that one visible in this picture? And, if I'm not asking too many questions, where does the Ghiglione-Ottoz route climb the pillar?
No, the Calcagno dihedral is a bit more down to the bottom right ot the picture.
The Ghiglione-Ottoz route goes on the L flank of the pillar, near the crest (basically following the R face of evident dihedral).
Peccato, avrebbe meritato di certo un posto d'onore nel mio collage delle Grandes Jorasses purtroppo già inviato a SP...
What a pity! It should have deserved a place of honour inside my GJ collage unfortunately already sent to SP...
...and me told you few days ago, why don´t you listen to us?! :-)))))
So glad that it now is indeed the photo of the week! One of the best photo's of the alps I every have seen posted here.
Ciao e auguri
Really great shot, thanks for that!
una foto che vale veramente
Ciao Antonio e auguroni anche se in ritardo
