Topic - Cassin route Paz Badile

rlade - on 05 Sep 2012
I am glad the Cassin route has brought out so much interest but still feel the hardest pitch is french 5/5+ and there are possible two pitches at that grade. One comment stated it was an alpine route, but surely you have to put your crampons on or move over ice for it to be an alpine route? I could see a speck of snow to the right of the route towards the top. So my final judgement of the route would be french 5 D multipitch rock route or english vs/hvs 4c/5a multi pitch rock route in dry conditions.
