This summer were in the Alpes Swiss and realise the Tour of the Cervino. This tour is a route circulate of more than 150 kilometres to the rededor of this wonderful mountain situated just in the border between Switzerland and Italy.
Along the route cross two Glaciers, The high Glacier of Arolla and the Glacier of the Theodulpass. The first carries us from Switzerland to Italy and the second happens us of Italy to Switzerland.
The Glacier of Arolla has a length of 4 kilometres of long (data of 2005) and this situated in Catón of Valais. In 1973 taenia an area of 13.17 square kilometres. In reality the Glacier of Arolla this composed by two glaciers: the Glacier du Mont Collon (situated in the top) and the High Glacier of Arolla.
Cross the high Glacier of Arolla was all an experience, we never had had the opportunity to walk on a glacier so we had our doubts in this regard. After placing them the crampones and of a torrential rain which almost does us desist of the attempt, decide to happen.
The experience was unforgettable, all an adventure. The difficulty is minimum if they take the necessary averages: crampones and a lot of attention with the grades cracks that cross it but that do not have any difficulty.
In the peak, the seen on the Italian part are esplendidas.
