Beautiful place

I have admired Monte Antelao several times from a distance. Is it possible to go up there in the summertime, in good weather conditions, without climbingaid? I mean rope, harness etc.

Re: Beautiful place

I have been there two times always on May and also with the snow you can climb without the rope long the "Laste". In the final part before the summit ridge there's a short climbing passage (II-III / 3-4 meters) where should be better ensure ourselves anyway (also because you are in a sort of ridge environment not ensured - Now i don't remember if there are any pitches long the ridge).
Be sure to be well fitted 'cause the pendence long the Laste is hard enough to break your legs before the top :). There's a bivac before the final part of the climb and in summer time it's surely free from snow!
It's a great mountain.

An extraordinary moment

it seems - letting the morning fog beneath just before the summit and entering a clear blue sky far beyond any valley ...
Could you post this with better resolution?

Hi Reinhard,

that's not exactly "fog" but the humidity condensed on the camera lens a time I took it out from the jacket...
