Italy 2012 - Gran Paradiso (4061m)

Gran Paradiso (4061m) is the highest Italian peak situated entirely in Italy. This sounds a little bit strange as there are a few more peaks on the border which are much higher.

In a few words here is the story:
We intended to go to Bernina after Marmolada, but after series of bad luck (first the traffic jams in Kanazei, then a motorcycle crush blocked the road and after a long wait we turned to look for bypass roads) we arrived at the start point Campo Moro late in the afternoon where it was starting to rain. We planned to be at the first hut (Refugio Carate - Brianza) the same day.
After having checked the forecast, it turned out that nothing good was expected the next few days. So we decided to change plans and go south to Gran Paradiso with the hope to avoid the bad weather. We were lucky. The day we climbed was great.
