The weather was meant to be good for the next few days when I rolled into the Bergamo Airport. Waiting for my friend to land, I was hoping that we could finally try to climb the famous Voie Cassin on the northeast face of the Badile peak - a plan we had hatched almost a decade ago.

When Saule was a kid, she visited the Dolomites and after seeing the Tre Cime decided that she was into climbing. Twenty years later she finally went up the north face of the Cima Grande and I got to tag along.

What happens when a Guru of alpine granite combines forces with a world champion in sport climbing? When I saw the names of Michel Piola and Romain Desgrange in the guidebook, my interest was picked. Many enthusiastic reports of the quality and the beauty of the climb cemented it further, we had to check it out ourselves!
