Repentance Super

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Western Alps, Group: Cogne-Valnontey, Height: 2050m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Repentance is composed of two distinct sections combined by a 60° snow and ice gully. The first section is more sustained and elegant while the second is easier (4°) and even in its own right would be a nice icefall. It is possible to exit right after the final step: this alternative is just as difficult as the climbing below and is ideal for those in such of stamina climbing!Repentance was first ascended in 1989 by an extremely capable team and in truly extreme conditions: the route was draped in overhanging cauliflower ice and an enormous hanging curtain on the lip. In recent years the route has always been compact and fully formed, enable it to be started from various different points, including the original start in 2007. Bolts dating back to various eras have been placed both to the left and the right of the icefall, making for a quick abseil descent.
