    Invernali - Via del Fratello

    Invernali - Via del Fratello

    Gianni Rusconi (1970)

    Documentary about the first winter ascent of the route 'Via del Fratello' in Piz Badile. The route was opened by Gianni and Antonio Rusconi in 1970 after several repeated assaults. With incredible courage and determination, the two brothers began the siege of the Badile in the least favourable season, winter. Fighting with bad weather, with high snow, with avalanches and the inevitable depression that takes anyone who enters the dark hole that is the Bondasca in winter, the Rusconi slowly gain altitude by equipping the course with fixed ropes until almost the exit of the great difficulties. The final assault on the summit was epic, hampered by very strong bad weather.
