Filip Babicz races up Aiguille Noire de Peuterey in 1 hour 30 minutes

di

On 27/08/2020 Filip Babicz soloed the South Ridge of Aiguille Noire de Peuterey in the Mont Blanc massif in a blazing time of 1:30:14.

A month after his fast solo ascent of the Integralissima de Peuterey on Mont Blanc, on Thursday 27 August 2020 Filip Babicz sped up the South Ridge of Aiguille Noire de Peuterey in the important time of 1:30:14. This ascent is obviously a huge "race" at high altitude, difficult to imagine and to imitate, up a long and complex crest on a symbolic mountain of the Mont Blanc massif.

The mountaineer of Polish origin, who lives in Valle d’Aosta, started from the base of the route at 16:00 and "one and a half hour later I stopped the watch, astounded by the measurement, embracing the statue of Virgin Mary on the summit."

The ascent was carried out without stashing gear or assistance, and the 37-year-old climbed with the following gear: only two pairs of shoes (running shoes and climbing shoes), a harness, a chalk bag, a dyneema lanyard, a carabiner and a belay plate for the mandatory abseil down the in-situ rope located at Punta Welzenbach. After reaching the summit he calmly descended the east ridge.

Babicz's Facebook post is published below and provides initial details about the undertaking. Click here to read the full report published by Filip Babicz.
