Hi everybody. It is very difficult from me to give you review. The guide was not from Peakshunters, but from Guide Alpine Bormio. I had a big problem with my stomack, so we decided to go to Piz Monteratsch. The weather was terrible : very cold, snowy and foggy, so it was fortunate not to be in Biancograt and I cannot say what was the rating of this route. But generally, guide Federico was nice, he had patiency with me and my problems. But he was with me only 1,5 day, not two, so what about any discount for me? And special thanks to Gauthier, he was interested about me and my preferencies. Have a nice time!
