Route Climbed: from Gonella Hut - Italian Normal route Date Climbed: july 1990  Sucess!

Quite long ascent but certainly less crowded than Gouter route.

The Dome glacier could be tracherous, I was alone and I didn't enjoy to cross it.

Route Climbed: Aig du Midi Date Climbed: 19 September, 2005  Sucess!

Reached the Summit with four friends in quite windy but excellent weather with a perfect visibility. Nice trip, beautiful mountain. Because of the health problems of one participant it took a bit too much time for all of us to do the Summit - 12 hours from Cosmique, but we did it anyway and had a pleasure to feast our eyes upon the sunset.

From Col du Midi  Sucess!

I was 12 years old. Something amazing and impossible for me that time. One from the most beautiful days... Meeting and 'flying' with avalanche in descent on M.Maudit - another unique experience in quiet young age.

Route Climbed: Brenva Spur-East Face Date Climbed: Jul of 1989  Sucess!

We tried twice. First time we could't find the route in first rock pieces in darkness and we came back to Ghilione Biv.

Next night we started at rock pieces in sunrise.

About 10 am we reached a top. Meetigg our firends who did Major route was nice surprise. After 16 years I remeber the cold on the summit and headache during never ending descend by traverse Mont Maudit and Mont Blanc du Tacul to Aig Du Midi.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: June 26th 2005  Sucess!

Reached the top just about seven in the presence of grand blue sky and barely a puff of wind or so it seemed. Have never been so thirsty in my life as I was on the descent. Could not get enough water on board.

Route Climbed: normal french (via ref.Gouter) Date Climbed: July 2001  Sucess!

Beautiful. My first touch with higher mountains. Thanks to good weather it was much easier(for my physical condition) than I had expected.

Route Climbed: Three M Date Climbed: July 2005  Sucess!

Wonderful day. I must admit I expected it to be a tourist route and it was tough. The omlet at Refuge Gouter on the way down was darn good.

Route Climbed: Gouter Route Date Climbed: 23rd September 2005  Sucess!

First time climbing Mont Blanc. Left Gouter hut at three and arrived on the summit at six, just before the dawn. I dont think we could've had better weather. The sky was clear, no need for head torches. There wasn't a breath of wind. Cold on the top though.

Route Climbed: innominata ridge Date Climbed: 23rd August 1991  Sucess!

I've climbed it several times, first time on normal route 6.8.1981, but the last one is via innominata ridge.

Quite long from Italy, but a real great climb, though not too difficult (IV+ only).

Route Climbed: 3 Mont Blancs Date Climbed: August 9th, 2005  Sucess!

I reached the summit for the first time (i'm just 15) with my dad and our guide. We had a beautiful day and left from the Aiguille du Midi at 6:45 AM We reached the summit around 1PM after 100 km/h winds. I sustained a first degree freeze to my nose and i couldn't feel it for some time afterward. My water froze, and therefore i arrived dehydrated aux Cosmiques but recovered shortly with food. Magnificent, a great experience overall. We celebrated at the Refuge des Cosmiques by sunset with Champagne I brought along.

Route Climbed: 3M Date Climbed: 18 august 2005  Sucess!

We started from Rufuge de Cosmiques at 1.30 in the morning. In the afternoon storm would come so we had to hury! At 7.06 we reached the summit! The was fresh snow fallen 4 days before and before col du midi there was even avalange danger! We went down to the Gouterhutte. That was a boring decent in comparing to the other route! You see strange people: people in jeans, with a strange bag and solo..... From to the Gouterhutte down to the mont blanc train is a long walk back.....

Route Climbed: 3 M Date Climbed: 13 July 2005  Sucess!

We slept in a tents at Chamonix - Reqin - Col du Midi - Col de Brenva and at the 4th day of trecking we did the summit. For me it was a difficult thing when you don't have an aclimatization.

Route Climbed: The Three Mont Blanc Date Climbed: 25 July 2001  Sucess!
