Normal route + VF route  Sucess!

Climbed Marmolada on the 22. using the normal glacier route up and down (wind was too strong for the via ferrata route). rdeached the top in three hours. Down again in 1,5 h.
Climbed again on the 24th, via ferrate up and glacier down (though not much glacier left). The Via ferrata route is not that difficult and much less crowded. Very nice mountain indeed.

Punta Penia  Sucess!

We went both up and down through the glacier. The weather wasn't very good, but you can't have it always, can you???
Was a pity, that the next day the weather was really nice.

north-west face  Sucess!

we climbed the ice-route on the north-west face, starting from Passo Fedaia. The first section was difficult because there wasn'n any snow and we had to "freeclimib" a wall covered with thin ice... crampons didn't grip!!
Dolomites' Lady is always worth being climbed.

Big storm on summit. Had to sit in the hut drinking tea for a few hours until it passed.

Missed the last lift down below the glacier but managed to persuade the operator to let us go down whilst it was running to bring up building supplies!

Very memorable day.

Ascent with the via ferrata and descent via normal route through the glacier. It was so foggy that we did not realize when we reach the peak: we could not see the cross which was about twenty meter far away.

Beautiful round-trip from Pian dei Fiaccioni via the small vernel glacier, the via ferrata (H.-Seiffert way) to the summit and back via the marmolada glacier (normal route).

Route Climbed: Up the West ridge via ferrata, down the Normal route Date Climbed: 2 Sep 2005  Sucess!

Two French hikers without crampons, helmet, harness, ferrata gear or rope had to be helped and turned back after falling and sliding a couple of meters on the Western glacier halfway to the start of the ferrata. The caretaker in the refuge at the top is very friendly and even speaks Hungarian! An unpleasant thunderstorm on the way down below Pian dei Fiacconi.
