Description

A beautiful slab with some forty routes on it. It is the easiest wall to get to in the Albigna Valley, with an approach time of 5 minutes from the cable station. The routes vary from 5a to 7a+, with some easy gulleys and ridges in between. On the summit ridge, the famous Fiamma and Dente tower over the valley. Climbing those two peaks is a must-do!
