The 360 that I am posting comes from the minor summit, separated by Forcella Stephen from the major summit which is the Cima di Ball. Namely, on the latter the weather was no longer suitable for a 360 view.
Incidentally, let me prompt you to read, in that masterwork of Alpine literature which is "The Playground of Europe" (by the way, also one of the nicest definitions of our Alps), the chapter "The peaks of Primiero". Here Leslie Stephen, who was a strong climber of the golden age of Tuckett, Whymper and Ball, besides being the father of Virginia Woolf, describes his solo ascent of that major peak, via the Val Pradidali, the route followed also nowadays (with the aid of fixed cables). But what I find absolutely stunning is that, in a late afternoon of August 1869, this subject of Queen Victoria (well, today he would be a subject of King Charles III...) dares to tackle a solo direct descent in direction San Martino, on an untrodden wall of 1400 m height. I tried to observe carefully and to understand which route he could have taken, but my attempts were not successful.
What I do not forgive to him is that, back in San Martino, he meets the President of the Alpine Club John Ball, and decides to name the summit after him. Actually, the summit was not unnamed, but was locally called Cima di Sora Ronz, after the pastures at the base of the wall - the very place where he should have landed in his epic descent. Unfortunately, the new name completely superseded the old one, which would have been geographically much more significant.

Gorgeous "Wolkenküche" with fascinating light-shadow atmosphere !!!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

NB: and thanks for the fine description - yes, Leslie Stephen was a "wilder Hund" and grabbed away the first ascent of the Schreckhorn before Edmund v. Fellenberg get the second success. The book "Ruf der Berge" is also a classic in my library ... see an excerpt in my commentary on Bruno's Schreckhorn Panorama #24068 with an interesting detail that E.v. Fellenberg was sitting on the Schreckhorn summit and below L. Stephen was descending from Strahlegg via Gaag, coming from another climbing tour ;-) ...

Die Pala ist ja bekannt für ihre Thermik. Hier wunderbar in Szene gesetzt, VG Peter
