Better than Nothing

Stefano Nesti and Marco Mason

meglio che nienteDifficulty: III / 2 +
Development : 25m

Location: Lake Saint to mount Giovo , Tuscan Emilian Apennines .

Access: from the refuge Victoria, reachable by car , the falls can be glimpsed through the trees above the lake on the left end of the same looking from the shelter Victoria.
From the hut the left coast of the lake, enter the wad of Pigs , and leave right away to go into the woods on the right. The way " better than nothing" is in the top set among the rocks, a prominent central stalactite .
The ways " between a hope and a wish" , "petit couloir " and " partition wall " climb the foothills just above the lower rocky lago.15minuti from the shelter for low , 20 for the one above .

Material : standard , medium and small friends useful , useless screws unless they find particularly thick ice .

Report: Climbing up on plates of ice almost inproteggibili , you come to the obvious stalactite, that view from the hut you will have attracted , like us on opening day , until them . On the right column there is a good chance to protect themselves , so it moves back up to the base of the same salt and avoiding considerable forces. Exceeded a few meters entertaining , with a few steps on paleo ice is reached sommatale tree that will act as a stop .

Descent: with a double to 25m .

General considerations: Definitely more beautiful to behold than done. it is a route of little interest arrampicatorio , perhaps more appreciable by a classic mountaineer Apennine that from a modern ice climber .
However, because of the precariousness of the structure is not a shot to be taken lightly .
Will be a good workout for those who would like to prepare mixed climbs in the mountains
