Last August, 2015 we climbed one of the most iconic peaks of the Alps : Lyskamm East. Huge, sparkling, complete : you can enjoy its aerial ridge, its famous north face or its rocky ridges.
The story began in the early morning with a phone call : weather forecast for saturday was awful, with an undefined quantity of snow, so Davide asked us what to do. The risk was to start and then stop and come back because of bad conditions. So, what can we do? The right answer came from Guercio : "let's try, there is nothing to lose. If it's not safe, we'll go back". Simple...
The prize for our good choice was a great dinner at rifugio Gnifetti, a perfect climb on Cresta Sella and an exciting descent via East Ridge.
Wild Lyskamm, full of snow, in fact we stopped at the end of the ridge, few meters under the top : there was no trace, so we had to do it slowly...
Once again this experience was a good lesson.
A big thank to my friends Davide and Guercio !!!
