Fancy of Peckers - Col du Peigne

First ascent: Gianluca Cavalli, Marcello Sanguineti, 08/12/2013
By: Marcello Sanguineti
Area: Western Alps, Group: Mont Blanc, Peak: Col du Peigne, Country: France

After some fun initial pitches, the route connects the snowy gully of Full Love... for dry and ice with the exit of the 1942 Livacic - Martinetti route, of which there is little news about "winter garb" repeats, apart from perhaps that by Nisbet and Spinks in 1979 (see Damilano: "Neige, Glace et Mixte").

The new pitches offer some great climbing; technical and delicate moves up a thin line of ice, past smooth corners that reveal holds only as you get close and lead, unexpectedly, through a true sea of slabs. Seeing the terrain (ice-covered slabs) the conditions can change considerably even in the short space of time, depending on snow cover and temperatures.
