Bettembourg - Thivierge

First ascent: G. Bettembourg & H. Thivierge, 1975
By: Roberto Rossi, Mountain Guide
Area: Graian Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Pic Adolphe Rey, Country: France

Splendid route up fantastic red granite. Perhaps the best route of its kind on the satellite.

ACCESS

From Rifugio Torino (3375m) traverse west towards Col des Flambeaux. From here continue beneath the cable car and descend towards the obvious Pic Adolphe Rey rocky outcrop. Start at the base of the 250m long corner and crack (pegs visible).

DESCENT

Abseil down Total Plook to the left or down the route.

GEAR

A set of nuts, friends up to size 3.5

Prima salita sui satelliti. Nebbia per tutta la salita. Fessure gelate. Forse abbiamo sbagliato giorno, ma che dire? Spettacolare.

Very nice route through a large corner. The start is quite hard (6b). Can be done by climbing the first pitch of Pas de Edelweiss or a detour from the right. Perfect rock, good belays.
