Big Micheluzzi*** VI
[The joy of mountains, 3 kb]350m, 12 pitches. Goes up the popular Piz Ciaves S Wall via a 90m traverse. Not as serious as many would suggest as their are numerous pegs and abseil descents,. A good climb nontheless

Worth 3 stars despite noise from motorbikes on road below crag.

4 pitches. The threat of thunder made us retreat for some sport climbing. The weather turned out ok for most of the day, but some heavy showers arrived about when we would've topped out.

Bailed due to thunder storm and needing a change of underwear after feeling the big flake on the traverse peel backwards as I weighted it.

Felt a bit cheated - a big Dolomite route with all the cruxes on slabs! Where did the jug pulling chimneys go... :)

Chasing "Extreme Alpine Rock" routes. Climbed to the Gamsband. A fine route, now polished I'm told.Thunder clouds were developing and a storm started when we reached ourcampsite. Another member of our group was killed by lightening on another route.
