This is a thread where to write about your lines in MonteRosa.
I can share with you what i did last week-end with my friends. On sunday weather wasn't so good so we started with a Balma waiting for the sun to come out. Nice snow but not extraordinary. After 11 clouds disappeared so we hit Malfatta (for those who have polvere Rosa check page 228) rope and harness needed to descend the first part!!
In the afternoon we skinned up to Passo zube (page 244) and skied the Val d'Otro (238) nice snow and breathtaking view.
But the epic day was yet to come. On Monday we hit Punta Vittoria N face (page 230) that's extreme skiing, so if you would like to try that I suggest you to hire a guide!! And maybe before going there check with him your skiing and mountaineering skills. To enter the face we had to use 50m of rope to pass a big snow frame. the very first part is really tricky (lots of rocks) and steep (65 degrees) but it's only a traverse to enter the face itself. The face is beautiful not extremely steep (50-45° then 40) but it's super exposed over two big cliffs (400m jump). The snow was perfect, deep fluffy powder but highly coesive, so there were no fractures in the snow; just little sluffs. After the face you follow the valley till Alagna. Powder everywhere and 1300m of vertical drop. Amazing.
in the afternoon we split up and I went with a friend of mine to ski a couloir under Indren's gondola. we used a rope to go in but it was good also to climb down... it's just 3 or 4 meters of rocks then powder.
conclusion: a really great day, one of the best i've ever had!
