Tschenglser Hochwand North Face skied in Ortler range by Florian Cappello, Roland Striker

by

At the end of May Florian Cappello and Roland Stricker skied a new line down the North Face of Tschenglser Hochwand / Croda di Cengles in the Ortler - Cevedale range, Italy.

After having studied the North Face of Tschenglser Hochwand / Croda di Cengles for a few yeas, conditions were perfect to ski it the other day. It's not often that you can ski this route because of avalanches and ice in the middle section. But Florian Cappello and I were lucky to have such good snow at the end of May, and we managed to ski the entire line.

We started from Sulden and climbed the mountain via the normal route before skiing the North Face in perfect powder. After a long traverse we reached a steep gully with a rocky crux, after which we exited leftwards. Finding the correct route isn’t easy at this point so you have to study the line carefully beforehand.

The wall is 470m high and the steepest part checks in at 50°.
