Orobie Alps - Presolana: first winter ascension on the North wall
Natali and Panseri on Placido Piantoni Route
07 April 2009
Spring is now coming and temperature becoming milder, but last march Daniele Natali and Maurizio Panseri, strong alpinists from Bergamo, spent a still “arctic” week end on Placido Piantoni route on the north of Presolana wall (Orobie Alps), performing the first winter ascension of the route. The itinerary (400m A1 7a + on a yellow surplombing wall) was completed in 1978 by Livio Piantoni, Rocco Belingheri, Flavio Bettineschi and Guglielmo Boni.
