Torre Firenze and the Glueck Arete, outlined by di...
Torre Firenze is the northwestern outcrop on the steep slopes falling away from the Stevia Plateau. Two routes that I'm aware of, reach the summit. More noteworthy of the two is the Glueck Arete or "Glueckkante."
From a parking area located at Ortsteil Daunei, reached by paved road from Wolknstein (Selva). Follow a well-marked path to the Juac Hut (Riugio Juac), and continue towards the Regensburger Hut (Riugio Firenze) before leaving the path for climber's trails leading across scree to the formation's base.

IV+). Another very steep section and overhang is overcome before reaching another bolted anchor. At this point the difficulty decreases along with the angle of the rock. The remaining 8-9 leads are on very good, juggy rock....[more] Browse More Classics in International
