Taking advantage of the probabily last Patron Saint holiday (for Milano Sant'Ambrogio, that was born in Trier, actual Germany)...
Goal was the Colma di Mombarone, a panoramic summit between Piemonte and Aosta Valley.
Unluckily I forgot crampons at home: Epic Fail!
I had the bad surprise that last 300m ascent were facing North.
The only 5cm of snow were so packed and iced that it would have been too unsafe to go on.
Anyway the landscape and surroundings were worth the trip.
Maybe next time :-)


Safety first... a good slogan for mountain-climbers
getting very old and making a lot of wonderful panos (;-)
marvellous scenery with a perfect sunstar!

It was very sensible to take no risks and keep away from the icy slope. The panoramic is very beautiful anyway and could not have been nicer from the sumit. Cheers Bruno.
