Description [Suggest Change]

Following the trail in front of Gorro Frigi with the rock on your left and the railing on your right, the route starts just before you reach the bulging outcropping.

*********NOTE: There are many old rusty 1/4" bolts that should not be used, and have been replaced by new bolts in the very close vicinity. Pay attention to this on all pitches.

P1: (IV or 5.5; 35m) Follow the bolt lines on slabby rock with generous hold to the double bolts for the first belay

P2: (IV or 5.5; 35m) From the first belay, you can almost clip into the next bolt from the belay station, depending on how the anchor is set. Bear slightly to the left following the bolt line until hitting the second double bolted belay station 2.

P3: (V or 5.6; 35m) From the second belay, clip the first bolt just above the belay station and bear slightly to the right, going straight up and over the roof using good holds for hands and feet. After the roof, bear slightly left and head to the belay station. Be aware that easier climbing above the roof is somewhat run out.

P4: (IV or 5.5; 30m) From the third belay step left of the belay station and go straight up to the fourth belay as the climbing starts to get a bit easier on the gentle slope toward the top. Set up an anchor at the triple bolt station.

P5: (IV or 5.5; 30m) From teh fourth belay, head up to the obvious corner all the way to the tree, go around the tree and top out. Two options for belay at the top: 1.) Double bolted station about 15 feet from the top, or 2.) using the cross on top as the final anchor

Descent: Rappel down the back  about 30 feet to the rappel rings, and using double 60m ropes, rap to the bottom.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolted with amble frequency. Be wary of old rusty bolts scattered throughout the route, recommend using the new larger bolts for the whole route.
