Fantastic climb! Carlo, our superb local guide, helped me and my son Christoph in finding the best way up the buttress, and in particular how to surmount the crux IV/5.7 slab. The weather was perfect and the views along the way unforgettable.
The descent back to Diavolezza was by the standard PD route which brought to me memories from 1975, the prior time that I had been on this spectacular mountain. The Ostpfeiler route is the best way to access the summit ridge!
Very nice rock climb with a fun snow ridge for desert. My first D- route. A long way down via the Fortessa ridge :(
My second ascent of the Palü. Three days before, we made the traverse of Palü coming from the Piz Bernina.
The pillar took us a long but rewarding day, that will definitely remind in our memories.
Second time on Piz Palü
Nice start of an alpine career. Finished by traversing to the isla da persa and walked back to the tent just above the diavolezza. After a cup of tea descent to Bondo. This was a long, beautiful day.
