Descent: Walk right (East) along the edge of the wall towards a gully a few hundred meters over. The side of the gully has red paint that says 3x25 meaning 3 rappels of 25 meters each. Wear your helmet and Do not do double rope rappels or you may not be able to retrieve your ropes and you will likely chop them with rock fall. Carefully rappel down the gully 3 times being wary each time you pull your rope. At the base it is a short hike on a nice trail back west along the base of the wall to your gear. Another descent option is to just hike all the way back (towards Pelmo) to Forcella Rossa then descend the gully and bend back around hiking back on trail 435 then 436 but this is at least 2 hours compared to the 30 minute rappel descent.
