This is a very popular and heavily travelled route. The lower 4 pitches ascend gray rock diagonally right and then follow an obvious ramp system trending left atop a buttress. A lead and a half traverses up and right is then necessary to avoid roofs, while the final 4 leads leading up to the Gamsband are more difficult at UIAA Gr. IV+ (5.6-5.7).
The route is accessed from the Ciavazes parking area located between the Sellajoch and Pian-Schiavaneis Hut. The South face of Piz Ciavazes is split in the center by a steep gully system. The start of the route is on lower angle rock (comparatively speaking) to the right of the base of this gully. The start (Einsteig) is "marked." Descend by traversing along the "Gamsband" path towards Sellajoch, as previously described for the Rossi-Tomasi route.
