This snowy ridge leads “down” from Piz Bernina after the ascend via the famous Bianco Ridge. For many alpinists it’s the choice for ascent and descent as well, but if you can, enter Grison’s highest peak via Bianco Ridge. However, the ridge shown here is tasty as well.
You notice the two tracks in the foreground, melting into a single one later on: It’s a passing-by-area. Too often you’re stuck on narrow ridges ’cause of other alpinists and have no chance to pass them – here you have ;-).
I really liked the track, following the distinct wave form of the snow. It was a real pleasure to be there with.
Hope you like my image!
