La Donna Cannone
New icefall which formed in winter 2009/10 thanks to the significant amount of rain which did not fall in previous seasons. The difficulty refers to the first ascent and may change considerably with more or less ice.
Take the Turin - Aosta motorway and exit at Pont Saint Martin, then continue north along the SR 44 to Gressoney la Trinitè (30 km circa). The crag is located on the right on the plateau before reaching Gressoney la Trinitè. Park the car close to the Senden dam.
From the car park cross fields to reach the base of the climb.
Climb the 75°/80° base wall direct to the first steep and overhanging drip 90°/95°. where this peters out beneath steeper terrain traverse right across cauliflowers to belay on ice (Belay 1, 35m). From the belay climb obliquely left past a series of protruding stalactite ledges (85° sections) to exit by climbing past some small ice curtains (Belay 2 on trees, 35m).
One 60m abseil off tree.
Full ice climbing rack.
