Guide feedback 27/1/2020 – Enrico Bonino Alpine Mountain Guide

Jan 27, 2020

Sunny day today in Valnontey. Temperature -7 at 8:30 am.

Ice conditions are still very good on Patry left and right. Looking around, Erfaulet main wall doesn’t look any solid with part of it showing the rocks behind. Di fronte al tradimento – colonnato centrale is on the way to form, not ready yet. The stalactite is not jamming the base cone yet. Sentiero dei Troll is also looking good with many teams on it. Valmiana first pitch looks on the limit of the stability. Thoule is still potentially very dangerous because of the second pitch being thin and exposed to loads of Sun.

ATTENTION: Snow fall and a lot of wind are expected from tonight on! Beware of avalanche danger, conditions can rapidly change.
