Pale di San Martino
Yes, the views were awesome!
Into the mist
Snowdrift crossing - neither Rachel nor I are much of a fan of these
The clouds lift briefly for some views of the peaks
Start of the cable section
Snowdrifts near Passo Ball
Looking down the descent to Rifugio Pradidali
Warm and dry and well fed!
Peaks in the mist
Heading up the valley
Rifugio Pradidali perched on the side of the valley
The weather rolls in...
Snowdrifts higher up in the valley
Rachel climbing the slippery snowdrift
Near Passo Pradidali Basso
...and more snow. I piked on this one and scrambled down on the rocks!
Rachel (the speck in the upper right) takes the (actual) route on the other side of the valley
In sight of the Rifugio Rosetta and cable car
A convenient verandah on which to strip out of wet gear and get changed
