Took the normal route after a night in Bivacco Andreotti. Easier than expected.
Very long if starting directly from Pian del Re.
Normal route from refuge Sella.
From Sella Hut via colle segentte. In July there was a crash of rocks just below it but the chains have been all fixed.
Than we climbed the south face. Nice long and demanding climbing. Not tecnically difficult, but many dangerouse rocks and stones. Follow the jellow signs: just few maters out of the way and you will find yourself in big troubles.
The descent is more dengerouns than ascent.
Sunny day but thunder strm in afternoon. 4:30 min
Valerio with Daniele, Mauro and Francis
I climbed it 2 times, one of the most beautiful isolated high peaks of teh alps. The highest top is not where most people stop (where ther's the Christ statute) but further on teh west, it can be easily reached if not icy.
Unforgettable day without noon fog, perfect weather, perfect views extending over 200km (see here and here), perfect peak!
Great Climb under a blue sky
Good route, but too many people on the route..
Great and interesting but very long route. Be very careful! A great satisfaction
Good and easy
Great ascent. Very tiring. The return has been very long. The view from the summit is incredible, it is possible to see a significant part of Northern Italy (the day was incredibly crisp). Be careful, consider that the way is long
