Easy approach, fun route, easy walk off, cappuccinos by a beautiful alpine lake reminiscent of Lake Louise. Gotta love climbing in the Dolomites!

Climb up the initial corner, but exit out out of it to the left half way up.  The next pitch traverses left to another fixed anchor and feels surprisingly exposed.  Third pitch tackles several more short corners to the next comfy stance.  The final pitch is the crux and gets a little steep at the top.  

Head into the bushes and pick up the descent trail that takes you back down to the base of the wall and your packs.  


Use Greg Gavin's approach beta in his comment found on the Monte Popena Basso overview page.  When the approach trail hits the wall, head left along the base a short distance.  When you arrive at the top of a scree gully and behind a small pinnacle, look for a red arrow and triangle at the base of the wall. There is a glued-in pin just to the right of the initial corner.


In situ gear and a small selection of rock pro.
