Description 

The route is found at the junction of Torre Romana and Torre Barancio from the south approach. The junction of the two towers is in actuality a very nice chimney, which constitutes the route. The first of 2 pitches is slightly more difficult than the second, and ends on the next to last chockstone; piton for belay. The second pitch finishes on the left hand wall, or on Torre Romana. Descend by 2 rappels from fixed anchors found at the West end of the Ringband, and anchor reached by traversing around the North side of the summit block.


Location 

Torre Seconda lies East of the Torre Grande, and a maze of paths crisscross the area. This route lies on the side towards the Torre Grande.


Protection 

Several fixed pitons, but a light rack of chocks and a few cams would be prudent. Several longer slings are useful
