We woke up in a strong and freezing wind and decided to wait for better weather, as it was forecasted. Those who left the refuge Quintino Sella, on the Italian side, despite the wind, came back a couple of hours later, their cloth frosted, saying they couldn't reach the summit because the wind was too strong on the ridge. At about 10 am the wind had decreased and we left. The glacier was in perfect conditions and we reached the summit in about 3 hours, then back to the refuge.
