torre vitali

The torre Vitali, close to the Ritterpass was climbed for the first time by Gigi Vitali with Also Bonaccossa in 1945.
As far as reported by Armelloni on his Lepontine Alps CAI-guide, untill the 1987 there were not known repetition.

It is a solid rock tower, with a climbing way at least of V. I guess that it should be explored by experted clibers.
I suppose that the isolated position and the fact that you have to walk for at least 2h with a delta of about 1000m to reach the start of the climbing (the only confortable point where spend the night is at Alpe veglia, 1730m)have prevented many climbers to go there

All the sourrounding of torre vitali offers several nice wall that may be climbed

Sky's the limit! Seen from close under, the tower is really impressive. Could be a challenging experience to climb it, also for the surrounding landscape. Really nice pic!
