Cicci, new rock climb above Mont Blanc's Val Ferret

04.07.2014 by Planetmountain

François Cazzanelli, Marco Bernardi and Marco Farina have made the first ascent of Cicci (7a+, 8 pitches), a new rock climb in Val Ferret, Mont Blanc massif.

There are few details as yet, all we know is that it's a splendid new rock climb up the fantastic Mont Blanc granite high up in Val Ferret, first bolted and climbed by François Cazzanelli, Marco Bernardi and Marco Farina. The route is situated on an unnamed face below the Gervasutti bivouac, on the left as you ascend from Val Ferret and right in the middle of the Frébouge glacier. 8 pitches up to 7a+ lead to the top at 3022m. The route has been dedicated to the late Francesca Marconcini.
