Description 

When viewing the Tre Cime group from the south side, the south side of Cima Piccolissma is obvious tooth like spire on the far right (East) side of the group. The south face contains the ultra-classic Cassin route, while around the corner on the north east face is the popular chimney line Preuss Crack.

Getting There 

The approach is obvious from the parking lot at the Rifugio Auronzo hut. From Rifugio Auronzo hike towards rifugio Lavaredo on the huge, busy path below the southern aspect of the Tre Cime. Continue past the Rifugio Lavaredo under the wall you will be climbing (the stunning pointed spire directly above you) to the pass (Paternasattel) then traverse back left on the trail up the ridge directly to the base of the wall.

This is a steep, relatively bold line up the South face of Cima Piccolissima. The rock appears shattered but due to innumerable ascents it is solid and clean with crisp edges and in-cut jugs. The final pitches (10 and 11 to the true summit) are loose and generally avoided by traversing directly left for 70 meters to the rappels.Pitch 1 / 2: 5.7 50 meters – you can do both first pitches as a single pitch with good sling and rope technique and establish yourself in a good spot for belaying the n...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
