The tunnel entrance is obvious in the picture, and...

Description 

Starts above a man made cave (war tunnel) and follows up a prominent black water streak for the first half. Don't get sucked into the left facing chimney. It's hard. Instead, climb up towards it then move left onto the improbable black face to its left using threads. Climb up to a large ledge then follow the water streak to a second ledge. At this point trend left and up to the top.

Protection 

Standard rack with threads. Approach the route from Valparola Pass hiking diagonally up and right to the base of the wall. To descend traverse right (East) along a terrace for a few hundred meters to a little tower. Descend a gully to the scree following cairns down and around to the right.
