This route is more of a 4th class scamper with an occasional climbing move than anything else. Its a worthy outing if you want an easy ascent on a sunny south face. To approach - park at the Val Gardena Col, walk down the road a couple turns then go left on the trail near a hut - the trail crosses the hillside for some distance - follow it until you get to the South Face go up the slope and back left on a grassy ramp to the base.
To descend walk West on a well marked path along the summit ridge then back down to Val Gardena pass.
