Monte Legnone Couloir NW first descent on ski

Marazzi, Pina and Lanfranconi on Cittadini della galassia

27 March 2009 Maybe is an odd idea to descent on ski a long couloir with some vertical sections,  normally  climbed on crampons and ice axes. Well, on march 23th Fabrizio Pina, Alessandro Lafranconi and Alberto Marazzi decided to fulfill this project. They ascended Monte Legnone from Roccoli Lorla, traversed to the couloir then descented on ski (4 rappels from deadman anchors used for no-skiable sections). Two of the alpinists used 192cm Telemark skies. The couloir (V 4 1700 m ) was first climbed by Giuseppe Miotti and Pietro Scherini on 1981. ms
