The E face of Gran Paradiso...

The E face of Gran Paradiso (4061m.) looming above the Tribolazione glacier, on the head of Valnontey. The classic route on this side (Frassy/ Jeantet, 1869, AD+, 50°, 400m. from the rimaye) is probably the best medium difficulty line on that mountain, in a real wilderness that requires good routefinding abilities.
