Luca Pasqualetti Bivouac at Morion
Description of the route
Altitude: 3,290 m
Location: Cresta del Morion (Bionaz, Valpelline) between Punta Gaia and Becca Crevaye
Sleeping places: 8
Open: always open
Trail sign: no
Ascent: 5/6h from Crête Sèche Mountain hut (or Regondi Bivouac).
The bivouac, inaugurated in 2018, was dedicated by the Pasqualetti from Cascina (PI) to the memory of their son Luca, a mountain lover, who died in the Apuan Alps in May 2014.
From Crête Sèche hut ( 2.410 m.) follow the path to Col of Mont Gélé; at about 3.000 m. a.s.l. leave the path and head southwest towards Becca Faudery. A short section of glacier and mixed (variable conditions depending on the season) will lead to the summit of Becca Faudery. From here on, climb the ridge southwards, constantly very exposed, alternating sections with good quality rock to much more movable and unstable ones, descending until Col Bonacossa. Climbing up from here you will find the hardest part (a 5th grade passage) of the way to the Becca Crevaye, and then to the bivouac. Bolts in the most difficult points.
Equipment: blankets, small solar panel for lighting.
