Fun icefall which rarely comes into condition, marked by a thin drip which descends down the dark compact granite.
Milan - Lecco - SS36 - Valtellina - Morbegno - Ardenno Masino – San Martino – Val di Mello (120 km from Milano).
Walk up Val di Mello to the huts at Cascina Piana. Cross the valley towards the icefall and walk up through the woods and the alluvial gully (45 minutes). Reaching the icefall can be tricky if snow covers the smoothe granite slabs (1 hours 15 minutes from the car park).
Abalakov aseil, 1 bolt with ring.
Normal ice climbing gear. Short and mid length ice screws, 6 quickdraws.
Take extreme care when judging when to climb this icefall due to the thin ice. Do not improvise!
