Description

Although the route is relatively easy, the somewhat runnout climbing can be disconcerting to a new leader. Not recommended for beginning leaders. That said, the climbing is obvious and there is a Sanduhr a few feet up the first pitch to indicate the route. During high season, you my need to wait in line. 7 pitches of nice middle UIAA Grade IV climbing. Descent by 4 abseils from
fixed ring anchors. To return to the hut, swing around the back of the formation to the West side. Return to hut in about an hour or a bit more. A 60 meter rope is mandatory.

Location

The route is easily observed from the Terrace ot the Rifugio Fonda Savio. It's a 15 minute stroll from the Hut, over climbers track through the scree.

Protection

Belay stances have fixed protection. Otherwise, bring a light Alpine rack. The protection already in place is sparse to non existent.
