Wish I was there... !
wish I could be there again :)
It´s a beautiful climb. Is it difficult?
no so much, it can be rated ad Difficult (slopes 55°-60°)
Thank you for your kindness, Gabrielle.
It looks very interesting. Nice shot!!!
it was amusing ... in these last slopes ... after the ugly ice in the lower part :)
I plan to do this climb this summer...I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas!
thanks for the shot!
don't go too late ... june should be the best choice ... I climbed it twice, first time in june, all good snow, easy and comfortable, second time in august ... very bad ice in the central part :(
thanks for the advice, I may then be lucky then because June is when I will be there..counting the days!
I'm planning to do this climb in July 08. Just wandering what protection you used for the upper snow slopes? Pickets simu-climbing or just roped up? Brilliant shot!
the iceaxe in the snow :)
On the whole route I haven't used any other protection than the iceaxe, just exiting the ice colouis, in the mid, I put the iceaxe into a crack in the rocks.
Looks like it is beautifully steep and has great conditions
that's absolutely correct :)
What a beautiful climb ya? Thanks for posting this one.
I went to climb it as a teenager, but it was my first time at altitude and I had a bout of mountain sickness. So it's very nice to see more of the face. Thanks.
not long and not so easy ... but maybe a little too strong for a teenager ...
you could do it now, 55 are not so many :)
bella, come le altre. Fu la mia prima salita, una vita fa, il 5 nottobre 1975, ghiaccio e picca con manico di legno che si ruppe a metà! (Per questo me la ricordo bene) Saluti
una picca (la mia vecchia Grivel col manico di frssino) ce l'ho persa anch'io la prima volta che ci son stato, per fortuna la neve era molto buona
