Tom Ballard's holydays: a new route and a solo ascent
The opening of "Dust in the Wind" and the Gogna route in solo: this is Tom Ballard's past year greeting03 January 2017
After the recent opening of the new route "Titanic", the brit mountaineer Tom Ballard didn't put himself comfortable: during the last days of the 2016 he opened a new mixed/ice route in Val di Fassa and made a solo ascent of the Gogna route.
The young brit alpinist have opened a new mixes/ice route in Val di Fassa: 100 mt is the development of "Dust in the Wind".
Instead, Tom passed the last two days of the 2016 climbing in solo the Gogna route on Punta Rocca in Marmolada: 9 hours of freezing rock climbing and a halfway bivy.
This is certainly the best way to greet the past year!
