BIANCOGRAT – Piz Bianco 3995m
WORDS AND PICS BY MAX ZIPSER
2:30 a.m the next day we woke up and skinned again up to the ridge close to where Dani and I had to turn round the last time. The snow in this mixed terrain was much better settled and we climbed fast with some “Tibloc” fixations through the rocks. On the top we had to rappel to finally reach the Biancograt, which leads for another 500 vertical metres to the summit of Piz Bianco (3995m). This hike on that spine is for sure something special and quite exposed all the way. About 1000m + drop to both sides - rocky and steep.
Exhausted but knowing the reason for our hike just starts now, I droped into the sunny side of the spine. All the snow below my edge went down to the glacier and we could hear it like an avalanche passing the serac. Attention was required, but as soon I got used to the riding it turned to be super fun riding that insane spine…
A great adventure, a wunderfull mountain and positive vibes will stay in my mind!
