Description

The "Via Normale" isn't climbed as often as the South facing routes due to the longer and more arduous approach involved. It is often combined as a second route for those not enervated by the Comici or Via della Guide, since it begins just a few feet right of the descent chimney/gully.
The route involves 4 leads of excellent face climbing just right of the West arĂȘte, and has some outstanding and very steep slab climbing.

Location

Viewed from the West, the large chasm separating the Grosser and Kleiner Falzarego Towers is the goal in the approach. A steep path diverges from the normal South face approach and is a scramble that may involve some lower 5th class climbing. For descent beta, see either of the previously described routes (Comici and Via della Guide).

Protection

Mostly fixed protection with many good thread opportunities. Bring long slings for threads, and a light rack.
