Mar, Apr, May
We meet in Alagna at 7:30AM and check the equipment. We take the lift up to Punta Indren (3273 m), then go up the Indren glacier and P. Giordani (4045 m) with skis. We descent following the same route until 3300 m. Then we go back up to the Mantova hut (3498 m).
Early departure, and we take the summer normal route to the Lys pass (4250 m). Then a long crossing takes us to the last and steep portion before the summit (4559 m). We descend on the same route down to 3600 m. Then we continue by a chosen itinerary (Malfatta, Balma, Miniere, Canale…) down to Alagna.
I will take care of the logistics and the reservation of the mountain hut.
If you don't have some of the technical equipment (harness, crampons, ice axe, snow beep) you can rent it with me.
Equipment: high mountains gear, full ski-touring gear (skis with proper ski-touring bindings, skins, rampant), poles, ski mountaineering boots, avalanche transceiver (with extra batteries), shovel, probe, harness, crampons, 1 locking carabiner, heavy gloves or mittens, hat, sunglasses, ski goggles, sun cream, head light.
I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.
My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.
The mountain as a playground has no limits!
