DescriptionBegin on an easy ascending traverse from the scree, diagonalling upwards to the left by following a prominent ledge system, and ultimately reaching the NW ridge proper. Follow the narrow ridge towards the summit, reaching another major ledge system. Follow the distinct ridge/arete to a platform below the startling summit block. Move around onto the North face and then upwards through a 40 meter long steep gully to a low point in the summit ridge. Climb over several blocks to the actual summit.
Descend over the south shoulder, down the "Normalweg," UIAA Gr. II-III to the Rosetta Hut. The funicular may be taken back to San Martino di Castrozza.
