Marmolada, new ice gap: “A loud roar, then a 200-meter crevasse opened”

New aerial inspection over the Marmolada glacier following a report by the hut manager. The technicians of the Province are carrying out checks in relation to a new posting. The area is off limits to hikers after the tragedy of July 3 that killed 11 climbers and wounded seven others. The observation activities of the glacier continue non-stop using lasers and interferometers.

The alarm started by the manager of the refuge

The alarm was raised by the manager of the refuge, an eyewitness to the umpteenth collapse in Marmolada who in fact spoke of a loud rumble on the orographic right of the massif and of a large crevasse that has opened. “From the first aerial surveys it is estimated that the crevasse has a width of about 200 meters and a thickness between 25 and 35 meters – the Province said -. The observation activities of the glacier continue non-stop by laser and interferometer”.
