Comments: I've used the German names exclusively in naming these summits, since these were in Austrian territory until 1917 and these are the names originally given. The province is South Tirol, and 3 languages are taught in the schools: German, Italian, and Ladin.

Comments: This route is exceptionally popular, mostly due to it's inclusion in several widely-read guidebooks as the middle section of the traverse of the 3 Sella Towers.

Comments: The website grading comparisons between YDS and UIAA Alpine needs some refinement here; this route is realistically either upper-end 5.6 or lower-end 5.7, which I've indicated as 5.6/5.7 and should be a UIAA IV+.

Comments: The Rifugio at Langkofelscharte can be a lifesaver if/when the temperature drops rapidly and clouds envelop the peaks. A fire in the woodstove and hot drinks can bring the coldest climber back to functionality.

Comments: I did this climb sometime in the early '60s, and had a confrontation with Bill Fowler at the base. He was screaming about his 25 cents, while the leader was getting ready to deck out on the trail. I drew his attention to the guy who was getting ready to fall on his head, and he took off running, saying that he'd collect later!

Comments: The architecture is very typical of South Tirolean Italy; formerly a part of Austria, before 1917.

Comments: I began counting the bolts and began losing track of the ones counted around 15. There appear to be at least 3 major lines in addition to combination variants.

Comments: The route has one slightly harder section near the start of p.2. It's well protected by a good piton. I rated the moves at 5.6/5.7, or UIAA Gr. IV+. The Bernardi guidebook shows this as a short "chimney," but it's more of a tight right facing corner.

Comments: A recent discussion of the rock quality with guidebook author Mauro bernardi, between the starts to the Comici vs. Via della Guide confirms what I had been told by other climbers visiting the area. The start of the Comici has some pretty awful rock. I gave a 4 star quality rating to Via della Guida on that basis.

Comments: Some recent information from mountainproject.com member drunkfox indicates that a massive rockfall took place a few years ago which wiped out much of the "Fifth Ledge Descent." Be advised the descent has changed.
