L'Onda di Hokusai

First ascent: Andreas Tonelli and Philipp Angelo, 5 and 16/03/2013. First repeat: Thomas Gianola & Klaus Baumgartner 16/03/2013
By: Andreas Tonelli & Philipp Angelo
Area: Dolomites, Group: Catinaccio, Peak: Molignon di Dentro 2852m, Country: Italy, Region: Trentino - Alto Adige

The Molignon peak dominates the upper Duron valley with its imposing face that marks the southern end of the Seiser Alm. The route takes a line up the eastern flank and finished immediately to the right of the Molignon di Dentro summit. The route follows a line of ice unique to the Dolomies, a real north face reminiscent of the Western Alps which, due to its beauty and length, could easily be found in the Mont Blanc massif. A large section of the route is hidden behind a rocky bastion and corner which makes the line difficult to locate from Val Duron. This is an outstanding vertical journey, long and demanding in a grandiose, wild environment.

This route is in memory of Manuel Moroder, the 15-year-old climber from Val Gardena who died in an avalanche on Monte Pic on 3 February 2013 and in memory of Giulio Longatti, the 37-year old alpinist from Bolzano who died in an avalanche on the Gran Zebrù east gully on 16 March 2013.
