Fantastic route, super exposed and awesome views! Stayed at the Pian dei Fiacconi hut the night before which made for a nice early start and an uncrowded route.

Brilliant day, brilliant views. Rather glad to be roped up on the glacier as we stepped over at least 3 crevasses...

Good mountaineering route

My first time on a mountain, tried it in may, most of it was covered up, the odd bit was exposed and useful for anchoring, quite a lot of avalanches of various sizes, nearly got hit by a few. Don't do it and expect to see any cable, more of a mountaineering route. Glad I read up on winter mountaineering techniques, would have felt more comfortable with two axes for some parts though. 12 hrs to summit, long day but totally awesome, lessons learn't for next time.

Amazing day out. Glaciers, vf, scrambling, snow ridges and crevasses, all day in crampons. What more do you need?

Glacier climb on hard water-ice, via ferrata, snow ridge to summit, descent via normal route down glacier (many obvious crevasses late in season).
