Via Leni was one, if not the first modern route in the E face of Spazzacaldeira. Due to the easy access (15 minutes from cable car) on weekends it draws lots of crowds.
It begins with an uneven slab/face. Crux is a slightly overhanging move at the end of pitch 2.

Descent: 20 Meter rap into a small couloir. walk/scramble down SW


The route is located on the left side of the long E face of Spazzacaldeira.


Almost completely equipped with bolts. Light complementary rack suggested for pitch 3 and 4

Great route! The difficulty as described in the guidebook is P1 5c, P2 6a, P3 5c, P4 5c, P5 5c+. I brought (and used) a small rack of middle sized cams. Aug 8, 2014
