Description 

Southern exposure allows early seasonal access. This is a popular area since many short single-pitch Sport Routes exist in addition to summit routes. The best known climb is the Colbertaldo/Pezzotti Route at UIAA IV+ (5.5/5.6).

There is very good rock, in general, and the routes have been cleaned up over the years from any major loose choss.

Getting There 

From the top of the Falzerego pass, about a mile along the highway towards Valparola Pass. There is a very large boulder left of the road shoulder as a marker when to leave for a climber's path leading to the most popular line, the South Arete, or rib.

A great route, well worn from many ascents, popular, climbs quickly, relatively short approach, with a great historical descent through old WWI trenches. Can be crowded. Sometimes very crowded.The route starts on the left side of an open trough (on the left side of the little pinnacle), just right of the south rib. Climb up and left, staying just right of the ridge crest for the first pitch (~25m) and the second pitch (~40m).The third pitch climbs up to the crest of the rib, then, jogs right ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Unbeknownst to me earlier, there's an alternative approach to the Colbertaldo route on the arĂȘte: a Great War (W.W. I) military tunnel which burrows through the mountain and exits near the start!
