This outstanding route lies just to the right of the corridor used to access the West Face area. Steep and sustained, the Rushmore Guidebook refers to this as 'one of the best 45' sport routes in the area'. It is not to be missed!
Bella Venetta is located toward the south end of the East Face. As you approach the east face, trend left to a shallow gully. Head up this gully and you will be at the base of the route.
