Monday Money

First ascent: G.C. Grassi, E. Tessera, 31.3.85
By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Western Alps, Group: Cogne-Valnontey, Height: 2050m, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Clearly visibile on the left after Patri, Monday Money is comprised of an easy 60m first section. The start is circa 85°, but this soon eases off to circa 70°, which leads to a steeo 85°/90° central pitch. An easy snow gully then leads to a final short 85° pitch.

NOTE: The Gran Paradiso National Park has issued a climbing ban to protect the bearded vulture (Gypaetus barbatus L.) in Valnontey (Cogne), Italy. It is prohibited to climb on this icefall and the others nearby (see map in portfolio)

GETTING THERE

From the Aosta West motorway exit drive through Cogne and continue to Valnontey. Park at the end of the road.

ACCESS

Walk up the long Valnontey valley to the Erfaulet bridge, and continue to the left of the river. Walk through the woods to reach the first big gully on the right. Scramble up loose terrain and reach the base of two large waterfalls with some difficulty. Monday Money is the righthand drip. Walk in: 1 hour 45min

DESCENT

Abseil from bolt and ring belays.

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear

NOTES

A long and sufficiently difficult icefall, often repeated and a great technical climb if climbed to the top.
