Posted on the 31 January 2012 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Last fall, mountaineer Herve Barmasse, along with his father Marco, opened a new route along the South-East face of Monte Rosa in Italy. The climb featured just about every kind of challenge you could imagine, mixing rock, ice, and snow in equal measures. The video below gives us a glimpse of that climb and the beautiful mountain itself, and serves as a great reminder of why the Alps are such an amazing place for mountaineers to explore, even in this day and age.
