Ascent Trip ReportThe ascent got in trouble as we had a major blizzard (snow storm), that hit us just before the Bivacco Andreotti. We stayed in the shelter in order to wait for better weather, however the snow accumulated outside and waiting much longer would have required skis in order to descend! This was quite a surprise, since we were already well into the month of July.
