Rappelled the Nordkante for logistical reasons. Not recommended. Made for a long day. If you can, I highly recommend going down the italian side instead. It was still an amazing day though!
Great, long climbing. Amazing view. Descend through the Italian side - recommended.
CLimbed the Nordkante
Nice rock scramble/climb up the normal route in very solid rock.
my third time on the top. and it's always an amazing experience
Climbed with Gabriele.
Perfect weather, perfect conditions. Finally a dream realized.
Climbed with andrea.it. Fantastic day, weather and mountain. No climbers on the route and stay on that summit alone was really a nice atmosphere.
A real (and therefore very busy!) classic.
With Karel, a great expirience. Long climb
Great climb, wonderful rock, good conditions. Descent to Gianetti hut.
A magnificant climb and a fun day out with friends.
Climbed this route on a beautiful sunny and warm day. See Climberland for comments and pictures
Great route, great ambiance. Descent via Nordkante, which is not very comfortable. No snow in the route, descent and approach, so no mountain shoes needed(end of august!).
great classic route with almost perfect rock! just the descent own the nordkante is a bit annoying...
Just a great long and hard climb!
Very long: about 26 pitches. Descended to the Italian side.
Despite what the English language guide says, there is no regular bus service from Bagne de Masino!
With Fred Spicker
We left the Sasc Fura hut at 4am, started climbing at 6am. Reached the ridge at mid-day, summited 12:30pm. 4 1/2 hours to descend the Nordkante.
Perfect conditions. No snow and the top chimneys were dry.
I've made several (three !) attempts to climb the Badile N-face. But without any success ... ;-(
Every time we tried the route the weather turns bad at the day we want to climb. But I will not abandon !
Climbed with Monica Spicker. A very long and wonderful climb!
