While walking down the street i met alocal guide who asked if i wanted to join them on the marinelli the next day.

After a dubbious start due to cloud formations we got out bed and soon after were waiting for the Heli at Testa Grigia, where the pilot gave us plenty of time to mentally preapare for the descent.

After an impressive flight and smooth landing right on Top of Silbersattel we were greeted by mountain-wilderness members who were not so impreessed with our arrival.

Quickly we started rappeling into a friendlyer environement and mountainguide Thomas Zumtaugwald (Turbo) set a second rappel station and i was lucky to go down first.

As i felt 20 to 30 cm of well setteld snow under the board i instinctively unclipped the carabiner and toke the first turns and it turns out we couldnt have asked for better snow.

Carefully we went trough the mid section with the ceracs and soon were standing on top of the last and biggest face.

For not beeing out of breath me and charlie were given the first tracks.

We thankfully accepted and started attacking the face. The snow conditions were perfect, so good that we didnt stop until we met the Bergschrund.

After a somewhat tricky exit trough the glacier the guides gracefully traversed their way out as we sweated and cursed at our splitboards til the Italian Restaurant.

We were a bit in a rush to skin back to Saas over the Montemoro but it quickly vanished as we met our pilot who was also having lunch there and kinldly made the offer to fly us back to Torre Castelfranco.

Big Thanks to our guides Fabi Lauber, Thomas Zumtaugwald and Roberto fort the unforgetable day.

- What a day!!
