The first moves are the hardest.On the approach, walk upwards past the Messner. The first pitch trends a little leftwards. Go over a roof (bouldery crux 5.10(+)) then traverse left and climb to an obvious belay on threads.
The other pitches go up a not-so-obvious pillar. There are no other features to describe where to go. On the last pitch, which starts from a ledge, move right up a groove then left to the final ledge below the summit.
No pitons or bolts, can be protected adequately with gear. There are quite a few threads.  Use double ropes.


On the north face of the 2. sella tower.
The start is hard to spot. The first moves lead over a roof 30 feet right of a dihedral that is the start of the Messner route.
Descent: Follow the trail towards the Piz Ciavazes South face, with some down climbing. The last 90 feet are steep (optional rappel).


Take lots of slings, many small cams and a few larger ones.
There are no pins or bolts on the route.
