Topic - Crampons+axe for Piz Badile approach?

kheegan - on 08 Aug 2012
Hi all,

I'm thinking of doing the North Ridge of Piz Badile sometime in the next few weeks. I know the approach involves crossing some snow fields (but presumably no crevassed glaciers). Are there enough snow crossings to require an ice axe and crampons?

Also if anyone has advice on the descent it would be appreciated. I'm probably climbing on double 50m ropes and am relatively efficient on abseils so I'm leaning towards abseiling off.
