    @Luca @49
    Have you done the Likken Schloss yet? Is it skiable without rope and crampons?
    From march 24th on we will be at Gressoney again and if snow conditions permit the Likken Schloss could be an interesting choice. I know the entrance and as far as it can be seen from the entrance the slope is fine. How is it after that?
    Thank you in advance.

    linke schloss is always skiable without rope or crampons... just be aware that the entrance it's exposed to the sun, so wet avalanches could be triggered.
    my suggestion is to do it first thing in the morning.

    when you're up? this week end i'll be in gressoney, maybe i can suggest you some runs

    @Luca,..... When it was my turn to do the rappel, the rock cracked and started to fall down. Luckily Håkon and Mathias realized what was happening and they throw themselves over the rock, trying to stop it. I heard them screaming and I just let myself off jumping the last 4 meters into the couloir, to cut off my weight from the rock, preventing it to crash on our heads...
    May the powder be with you.

    @Luca
    we are at Gressoney at the moment and Friday/ Saturday should be good days with some powder, how much is uncertain. Are you going to come? Maybe we can ski some good runs.

    my latest descent
    Couloir Francesca from Quintino Sella. Not much repeated because it is not easy to locate and to see the whole line, which is hidden between rocky walls and lyskamm's glacier

    Great start of the season, [mention="/profile/8654"]@Luca[/mention]! I need to go to Monte Rosa again soon.
    Is there a video of your friend Matt's straightline? It looks a bit like Cody Townsend in Days of my Youth. 😉
    Did Seth Morrison ski the same route? I'm looking forward to his video.
