Piz Boe

Heading up the Vallon chairlift - finally a beautiful day


Looking up the valley to the ferrata - the route climbs the left of the waterfall before crossing a bridge near the top of the wall

Rachel on the bottom of the climb

An icy ledge

Looking up the route - more scrambling than climbing

The bridge across the waterfall

The top of the route

Looking back down - an easy section

Ice on the waterfall

Looking down the waterfall into the valley

On the track towards Piz Boe, the middle peak in the distance

The climb up to the Cresta Strenta

Rachel and Piz Boe in the distance

Climbing on to the Cresta Strenta

Icy approach to Piz Boe - the crowds on the other track can be seen coming up to join us

Summit crowds on Piz Boe (including dogs!)

Rifugio Capanna Fassa on the summit of Piz Boe

On the return path, walking under the summit ridge

The route heads down the steep gully ahead

Snow in the descent gully. Eight people on a rope is a recipe for trouble! Rachel takes the smart route...

... and gets ahead of the dodgy manoeuvring!

The path traverses under the cliffs

Past a small lech

Back to the walls next to Piz da Lech where we started the day
