Kade Spears climbing the Cascade de Lillaz • February 1, 2009

Kade Spears joined Mark for a day's ice climbing in Cogne, Italy. On a Busy Sunday, there were lots of climbers, but with flat, well-defined steps below nearly every pitch, we enjjoyed a bit of quiet now and then, and missed out on the problems of ice-fall from other climbers.

The second pitch, above a deep pool.


a couple pitches later, we arrive at the longest step of the route, seemingly crawling with climbers.


We climbed on the far right side of the falls.

Kade gives the thumbs-up as we begin the pleasant walk back to the car.
