Matteo Della Bordella, Matteo Bernasconi and Tito Arosio returning from Siula Grande

The three mountaineers had to give up the climb

30 August 2017
Matteo Della Bordella, Matteo Bernasconi and Tito Arosio had to give up the Siula Grande for meteorological conditions that were far from good.

It has been a month since when Matteo Della Bordella, Matteo Bernasconi and Tito Arosio flyed in Peru, with the goal of climbing the Siula Grande - a mountain of 6344 meters in the Cordillera Huayhuash - for the East Wall, of course in Alpine style.

Unfortunately, the weather was clement only during the acclimatization, and then it was a bit scandalous. After changing the climb line, Matteo, Matteo and Tito, managed to attack the wall, proceeding untill the snow forced them back to the Camp.

Not having enough time to wait for a good weather window and try again, the only chance is to resume the homecoming ...

" It ends here our adventure at Siula Grande, Peru. Needless to hide the disappointment for a weather that was perfect throughout the acclimatization phase, but then unfortunately changed and did not leave us any concrete chance to climb this mountain. Too bad we could have done better but for this time things went like that..." Matteo Della Bordella
