Red Bull

First ascent: M.Galli, D.Fiorelli & M.Sertori 1999
By: Mario Sertori
Area: Central Alps, Group: Livigno Alps, Height: 2300m, Country: Italy, Region: Lombardy

The walk-in is long but nevertheless well worth the effort: the climbing is splendid and relatively straightforward, set in a wild and isolated habitat. The icefall Bondì Ghibinet can be seen opposite, suspended in the upper section of a deep gulley (hydrographical right).

GETTING THERE

From Milan drive to Lecco and then Colico along the SS 36, then continue along the SS 38 to Bormio. From here take the SS 301 towards Livigno and the Foscagno Pass 2291 m.The Forcola pass which connects Valle di Livigno with Valle di Poschiavo is open from May to November only.

ACCESS

From the car park at the start of Val Viera walk up the valley along the river bed, crossing the river from time to time, to where the valley turns east (1 hour). Continue past Val Rossa and the rocky wall and first icefall (Shining Ice 95) on the right (hydrographical left). Continue on up to reach Red Bull, easily recognizable thanks to the three stepped sheets, interrupted by a series of easier angled sections. Ascend the steep gully past iced pine trees (2 hours).

ROUTE

Three nice pitches, all with vertical sections.

DESCENT

Abseil descent.
