Ten years after 6c

5.11, Trad, Sport, 720 ft (218 m), 7 pitches, Grade II,  Avg: 4 from 1 vote
FA: M. Casella & L. Arn 1994

Description

Excellent granite on the peak Poncione di Ruino, which is the most obvious and attractive peak looking north east from the Capanna Pianesco.

Pitches go at 6a-6c, and cruxes easily aided on closely-spaced bolts.

Just a ton of fun.

Location

The middle-right face of Ruino.

Protection

Well-bolted, still take some gear up with you.

Abseil the route. 2x50m works fine.
