Aiguille du Midi - North Wall - route Carli-Chassagne (D)

that's a beautiful and very long route of mixed on this majestic north wall. We did a winter ascent with a bivouac. The route is pretty easy in the first half after which you find a beautiful goulotte (2 or 3 pitches max 70°/75°). The upper part is mainly of mixed with a passage of IV+/V on rock plus the final traverses on ice/snow. Total height difference is 1500 m (1000 only for the route).

Climbed by Benigno, Diego, Matteo and Lorenz on 19 and 20 March 2005
