An ambitious north combo in 24 hours

Red Bull X-Alps athlete Aaron Durogati (ITA1) set himself an ambitious challenge: climbing both the north face of Ortler and Gran Zebrù in one day!


The idea of this adventure is simple: to climb the north face of Ortler and the north face of Gran Zebrù in one day and to use the paraglider for the transfer from one to the other and back to the starting point.

My initial plan was to climb both north faces in two consecutive days, but after I climbed Gran Zebrù on May 26th I started to think about the challenge to climb both within one day! Finally, on June 1st, the weather and snow condition on the mountain looked good enough for a try.
