Pizzo Pesciora (3120 m)

Exellent crazy conditions just now in the south faces. 30 centimeters of fresh snow lying on a hard layer. Starting from Ronco in Val Bedretto, the Pizzo Pesciora (3120 m) is a very alpine summit, with in final rocky ridge ending by a tiny chimney. We carried the skis up to the summit to ski down the south-east side of the mountain, an great traverse.
