It´s a beautiful climb. Is it difficult?

Question on the climb?

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!

Re: Question on the climb?

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.
thanks :)

Great shot

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.

Re: Great shot

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 :)

Anni fa

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

Re: Anni fa

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
