Piramide Vincent, SE face Map

this line could be easily seen from Indren and form Punta Giordani: it runs through the side of Piramide Vincent and it's full of rocks and cliffs. For Specialists!! it will give you an amazing view over Valsesia and Gressoney. In the lower part you join the normal route for Punta Giordani just in front of the Indren lift.
