First ascent: Yuri Parimbelli G.A, Marco Kita Tiraboschi G.A, Ennio Spiranelli CAAI, 03/04/2015
By: Ennio Spiranelli
Area: Bergamasque Alps and pre-Alps, Group: Alpi Orobie, Peak: Monte Aga, Height: 2720m, Country: Italy

First light saw us at the base of the gully, which at first glance looked excellent. Our only worry was… would we manage to breach the cave that towered overhead? No need to describe how happy we were when we noticed that a hole that enabled us to continue, quite simply fantastic!

The next pitch was the hardest, two thin drips, difficult to protect, outstanding… for the second! Three pitches that perfectly suited Parimbelli therefore. A fourth mixed pitch, still somewhat demanding, led us away from the main difficulties. From here two more pitches up a diagonal ramp took us to the snowy col.

At this point we could have traverse off to the left and exit the face, instead we decided to head on up to the summit. Another beautiful ice pitch followed by two mixed pitches allowed us to enjoy the well-deserved view from the top. It 's true, we were in the Bergamo Alps, not on a massive alpine peak, but nevertheless I believe SuperPiter is a fine climb.
