The Shopping Trolley Chair Lift

One of the reasons I delayed going to climb the Marmolada for so long was that the approach to the hut for the overnight stay is via the Fiaccone Lift.  I have travelled on a number of very rickety and ancient lifts which have since been condemned but this one looked the most fragile and insubstantial of them all,  A single person has space to stand in a small cage with open space all around.  Finally last summer I did it, and it was fine (of course)  You can walk instead of using this lift, but when you are carrying all your stuff for a couple of days, and hoping to arise at 3am to walk up the mountain, this is not ideal.
