Cuori di ghiaccio - Grand Flambeau
Great climb up Gran Flambeau, past thin ice and lots of mixed terrain.
Reach Courmayeur in Italy and take the Skyway cable car up to Rifugio Torino.
From the Torino hut head towards Colle Flambeau, a few hundred meters before on the left head towards the wall. The face is on the left, 5 min from the refuge. The route starts 30m before the arete. Starting altitude 3360m.
P1: 25m nice pitch with sections of M5, bolt belay with sling on ledge in the middle of the gully
P2: 30m M7 start up overhang, fairly difficult to get established above this (bolt on the left above the overhang), then gully and not easy exit, bolt at exit and bolted belay with sling
P3: 45m classic winter difficulties, 50° leftwards to the base of the gully, bolt belay with sling on the right
P4: 45m follow the (wonderful) gully and then continue up wide open slopes
P5: 45m classic winter difficulties up to an obvious triangle where the line joins the last belay of Koala pirla
Abseil down the route.
Friends up to BD blue, set of nuts, slings. Two 50m half ropes. Ice screws are pratically useless here.
