To get this last peak it took 1.5 days. We spent the night on a small rock ledge. We had to sit closely together, because this helped to keep us warm. But the pain and suffering paid off and now I feel this wonderful feeling of happiness and relief.
The team reached the summit via the route called Titanic (ED+: VI 5.10b A2 90 degrees, 950m). Titanic was put up by Giaroll and Orlandi February 10-11 of 1987. “We suggest the name of Titanic for our route. The smooth granite of the upper part of the pillar has the form of a great overhanging prow of a mysterious ship“ – said Elio Orlandi (AAJ 1987).
The team has climbed multiple other smaller peaks to warm up, which also included first ascent on Silla. From January 22-23, Siegriest, Huber brothers and Mario Walder, made the first ascent ofL a Silla’s west face: El Bastardo (5.10 A0, 1500m).
