A good training climb close to the Torino Hut and Hellbronner Lift on the Italian side of the range. The traverse is good for practicing leading and moving together on rocky alpine ridge terrain.
|PD||200 m||4-5 hrs|
With a short half hour approach, this is an ideal route for getting to grips with alpine terrain without the usual time pressure. The climb follows a scrambly alpine rock ridge, with one or two trickier steps leading to the summit. These are best tackled by using a combination of simu-climbing using natural spikes as runners on the easier sections and short pitching to protect the harder bits. The route can then either be reversed for a shorter day, or continued along the frontier crest for a few hundred metres, to a point where an abseil can be made down off the ridge and onto the glacier again. There’s also a really good spot for (safely!) practicing moving together on narrow snow crests near to the start of the climb, so it’s an great place to learn lots of alpine skills.
