βeta: Rapped Nordkante, really not as much faff as everyone makes out... 4/5 hours. 80m single nice for linking pitches, long pitches (one is 75m) and rapping the Nordkante as bolted rap anchors are supposedly 45m apart, although even with 80m a little down scrambling was sometimes required - never too hairy though.

βeta: The walk up to the Sasc Fura took us about 4 hours even with a helpful lift up the forestry track. Some ladders and chains but will need some more work in some areas to cope with the traffic.

βeta: Since the new walk in to Sasc Furä is much longer (5hrs), the routes of Badile are quiet at the moment. Rewarding climb on mostly perfect granit.

Dave Garnett 3 Aug AltLd O/S A big day out. Crampons at the top of the approach from the hut but the traverse was clear of snow. Tony led the second half of the route. Bivouacked on the Ridge, totally exhausted and cold. Exciting dawn traverse to the top, descended to the Gianetti and spent the night there. Memorable episodes, aside from the the most uncomfortable bivi ever, include untying from the jammed rope on the first 5c pitch and Tony managing to slip on wet rock, snapping the in situ (and only) gear... Epic.

esther ?Aug - Amazing day. We did the long (4ish hr) walk up to the sasc fura hut. 5am start from the hut. 8ish hours on the route, 1 hr ish to the summit and down to the Gianetti Hut. Made friends with some Germans and shared a expensive taxi round to our car. Down to Gianetti by 8pm. Route finding got easier the higher up we got. Got a bit confused around the 5th/6th pitches were the topos were a bit confusing. Once we followed our nose rather than trying to stick to the exact description it all worked out.

davkeo 1 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S A near perfect day on this classic north face. Pretty fast by our standards too. 5.5hrs for the climb then a bit of moving together to the summit. Chose to take just 1 x 60m rope so we down climbed & abbed the north ridge in 3hrs. Dropped my phone on the descent so spent 30 mins or so collecting its scattered remains. I then got stung by a bee on my neck! Still, all that couldn't take the shine of the overall experience. Our eagles nest bivi spot at the notch will b hard to beat for situation & atmosphere overlooking the face. A day when it all came together.

Quite some traffic to begin with but dispersed after the big ledge and crux 6a pitch. Did not take ice axe or crampons and did not need them for the approach or the long and tiring return the following day.

tomdude 13 Aug, 2016 AltLd Classic mountain trip! Bivied below route. First to start but got a little confused after middle easy pitches so ended up 3rd. Hardest pitch seemed to be the 5b chimney. Surprising amount of hollow rock. Climbing OK but highlight was arriving at the mega exposed ridge. Got talked out of abbing ridge so stayed in Gianetti and walked back in AM - nice walk over Porchilezzo and Trubinasca passes.

GeorgeNunn ?Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S Great day out. Route finding not to bad. Belays all had at least one bolt. A splattering of in situ gear to help but mainly using your own protection. Once you get on the north ridge, for us anyway it was a riot of people and party's ropes climbing over the top of each other. Decended down 'another day in paradise' on the north face. About 3 1/2 hours from summit to base of route. Easy route finding and much steeper than decending down north ridge. All belays are equipt to abb and get better as height is lost. :)

So frustrating watching so many displays of incompetence in front of us and not being able to get past! Did summit ridge with head torches and slept outside the bivvy hut. Good, varied climbing though, never really hard. Recommend getting a really early start or do at a quieter time of year!

Peter Metcalfe 4 Aug, 2015 AltLd Take lots of water (2L) minimum. Just goes on and on. The first pitch in the Exit Chimneys was horrendous, could arguably have been another crux. 6a crux feels like a sustained HVS (5a). Eleven hours from Cassin Boss to summit ridge. Traversed over the summit and dropped down to the Gianetti. Hell of a walk back the next day - see if you can get a lift!

a pedley 21 Jul, 2015 AltLd Left hut 3.30am back at hut 10am the following day!!, was all going well till i lost my belay device, abbing down the North ridge would be a ball acke at the best of times made worse on an Italian hitch which turned the rope to tangled spagetti with numerous rope snags on the pull through meaning jugging back up the ropes in the dark four times with impending thunderstorms going off all around a real joy, we got into a rythem and made it to a ledge by midnight and decided to bivvi there for the night and wait for light, many "spooning moments" later the sun came up and we were 4 abseils from the col, the north ridge is a real pain, even in the light it would be tricky. The climb is great fun, felt hard for the grades but nowhere desperate, the climbing took us eleven hours but getting stuck behind other groups must have cost us upto 3 hrs, 50 m ropes, 12 quickdraws, set of friends, wires 1~10 and a few long slings each, 2 litre of water each just about did it but then again it wasnt that hot!!, take something warm just incase you have an unplanned bivvi and dont knock the spooning, needs must!!

ChrisBrooke 8 Sep, 2014 AltLd Epic few days. Flew out, drove to Bondo and walked in to the bivi spot on Saturday. Climbed the route on Sunday, finished in the dark and did the last hour moving along the ridge to the summit with head-torches. Night in bivi hut, descended to Italy on Monday, and walked back over the passes to the Sasc Fura. Didn't especially enjoy the climbing itself but being on that face is pretty epic. Colin did a great job on the hard top pitches as I was knackered by then, carrying a bad cold/hacking cough.

I overcame the first exit chimney with a series of full body jams in the narrow part of the chimney. The exposure felt on the penultimate pitch was amplified by the helicopter that hovered 15m away to check if everyone was doing ok.

There are some snow patches on the traverse into the route but they were reasonably negotiable with some stiff approach shoes, crampons and ice axes. Rest of the route is super dry.

Overall about 7 1/2 hours to do the route and 4 1/2 down to the foot of the North Ridge. A couple of moves of 6a, but the main thing is it's 26 pitches so you've got to move.

irish paul ?Sep, 2008 AltLd O/S Brilliant Route. Did it two years after first considering it. First up it that day and last off it having abbed onto the NW face by mistake. Joined with some Italians who spent two nights on the mountain. 25hours bivvy to bed but every second was worth it.

Neil Adams 14 Jul, 2007 AltLd O/S Upper chimneys very wet so pulled on a fair bit of gear there, otherwise all free. Got held up behind a very slow party so had an interesting descent of the N ridge in the dark.

Neil McA 17 Aug, 1984 AltLd O/S Excellent! We approached direct up the glacier and did the more direct start up the lower walls avoiding the walk in along the ledges, but of course had to carry our plastic boots, crampons and axes on the route. Soloed down the North ridge. 6 hours for the route and 6 hours for the descent! Did the NW Spur of the Cengalo 2 days before. Fantastic 3 days in the mountains.

uphillnow 4 Aug, 1981 AltLd Had to wait for face to clear of snow, chimneys were quite wet. Lead most of the route but Richard lead at least one of the nicer pitches. Descended the North Ridge. Most of climbing is less fine than the Cengalo
