pointing out these neglected spires ...
I think nobody of us has never climbed them and I think nobody of us will ever go to climb them ... but these shrewish summits (difficult to be climbed) are really very fine, their profile is always highlighted while looking at the Aiguille Noire or to the Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey.
Once, during one of the summer weeks I used to spend in val Ferret, I suggested to go there ... my climbing partners answered : there's a lot to do HERE, without wasting our time with posts made of stone ...
As for I think that (if the rule of climb before posting
will be abided) they will hardly have a own page, I decided to make a simple album containing also some (maybe useful) info.
5 different summit in a very narrow space, 3 growing up from a common basement, 1 well detached on the N side, 1 growing up from the E edge of a maior one : these are
l' Isolèe - 3577m - the one detached from the main small group
the Punta Casati - 3592m - the northern one
the Punta Castelnuovo - 3601m - the central one and the highest
the Punta Jolanda - 3593m - the southern one
the Punta Cretier - 3574m (normally not distinguished because on the East edge of the Punta Casati)
I heard of two different ways to approach them (before climbing the final part) the East side, from the Brenva, loong and somewhere dangerous, while the West side, from Freney, is not safer but much shorter (if you're able to cross the Freney glacier of course).
