Fast & Furious

First ascent: Mauro Franceschini, Fabrizio Recchia 06/2013
By: Fabrizio Recchia
Area: Graian Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Aiguille de Chatelet, Country: Italy, Region: Valle d'Aosta

Short but interesting outing up the South Face, forged ground-up with 10mm bolts over three days in June 2013.

GETTING THERE

From Courmayeur drive up Val Veny and park at a Promotton.

ACCESS

From the car park at Promotton in Val Veny continue on foot towards the campsite La Sorgente and take the path that leads to Rifugio  Monzino. Do the first part of the ferrata to reach the large grassy ledge at half-height. Walk along this ledge to a larch tree at circa half way; a track leads off from here to via Velociraptor. Follow this for 50m to a cairn, from here scramble diagonally upwards to the face. Cairn marker at the base.

ROUTE

P1: 40m, 5b
P2:  45m, 6a
P3:  35m, 5c
P4: 55m, 6a+
P5: 35m, 5b
P6: 30m, 5c
From the 6th belay follow the line and bolts of S6 Velociraptor rightwards to reach the slab belay. Finish up the final pitch of Idrotecnica (yellow/gold Fixe bolts) tp reach the grassy ledge. Walk along this to descend on foot.

DESCENT

Descend on foot down the ledge at half-height to reach the ferrata path that leads to Rifugio Monzino.

Bella via. Giusto un pochetto troppo lichenoso il secondo tiro ma con le ripetizioni si addolcirà. Ingaggio assicurato per chi, come me, è alle sue prime esperienze su granito...avrei aggiunto un grado a ogni tiro.
