To find a never ridden face down a 4000m peak in the Mont Blanc massif, where pretty much everything has already been skied, is not an easy task. But Julien Pica Herry still kept an eye on a line and last week, together with Davide Capozzi and friends, they headed out to realize their dream.

BOOTS and BINDINGS winter 2015/16
CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES TESTED
The Vaude Boe Bib Pants are freeride oriented mountaineering pants instead of pure touring pants. Nevertheless I had the chance to test it a complete hard season while touring and I want to inform you about my experience with those pants.
Regarding the snow conditions of this season our mountaineering skills got leveled up, so I havn`t been out with my beloved Vaude ABS backpack but with the Vaude Simony 40+8.
We have tested the new Penguin Pinneco Insulation Jacket. The material 100% recyled Polyester, is super soft and really smooth tp wear. The aguility and flexibility required in mountainsports is absolutely given and the shape is cool.
The Vaude Tacul Jacket is perfect for ambitioned Mountaineers who like to wear, sensfull and simple designed Equipment. The matter of sustainability is important for Vaude what I like a lot. We enjoy nature and so we should also protect it as far as we can.
The Vaude ABScond 36+4 L is an excellent toploader, with enough space for touring equipment and dslr camera. It is perfectly suitable for advanced touring with sleepingbag, more day touring or longer day tours.
The side entry makes it super easy to reach all your stuff quickly
