Five layers of clothing on a mountain, ain't enough at times to prevent the odd shiver, but then the glow of the Milky Way & meteors shooting through the Tre Cime spires is a warm feeling indeed. The hike is long, tiring & the climb up the vantage point is dodgy, to say the least, but the view from here is absolutely breathtaking. It gets extremely dark by the time you are done shooting around 1 a.m. with the far behind city lights glow gone. The slide down the mountain in pitch dark night is extremely treacherous & you need to retrace your steps a couple of times from the ledge. The hike back to the Rifugio was another 90 minutes, which were spent on reliving the awesome visuals & contemplating another visit here in the future.
