Enrico Bonino opens a new route on Combe Maudit

An...ice surprise (M7, WI5, A1+, III, 350m)

During the two days
spent to open this beautiful route Enrico Bonino and Giulia Venturelli had to put all their efforts and expertise to win the wall. This path requires great familiarity with dry tooling and knowing how to place the protections in order to avoid unpleasant flight.

In the eight
pitches of the route there are numerous passages in dihedral angle and overhangs crags, where the two used copperhead, rurp and micro blades,
and of course friends and ice screws.

This route, spectacular, selective and with just one artificial pitch will probably become a great classic route for this kind of climbing.
