Itinerary description

Crossing of the Rasac pass.
It was very tricky, because I was strict with myself and avoided to set foot, alone, on the glacier. Thus, I had to negotiate the difficult and dangerous scree slope on the opposite side.
Please think twice before following literally my track in that stretch!!
Also, the many counterintuitive detours that I had to make in order to avoid the most exposed and slippery stretches could be not represented faithfully bu the GPS data, because of the incumbing rock wall.

This is the name that I gave to a leaning stone which reminds me the "Omo di Cagna" in southern Corsica.
