Pitch 1 of Espolon de Adamello, with the south fac...

Description 

Many climbers' first route in Riglos. This was first done in 1965. Now retro bolted and a classic sport climb. Adamello gives a good intro to the rock here as well as the "panzas" ( bulges). This routes has lots of sun, good rock, mostly easy climbing and will get you familiar with the lower half of the descent from El Pisón.
The second pitch has 2, 5.10 bulges. Otherwise, the climbing is 5.9 and under.

Location 

The next "small" formation right of El Pisón is Macizo I. Adamello follows a ridge like feature at the right of this.

From the top it is possible to continue climbing "Torreón" to the summit of El Pisón. Otherwise, break right along a wire cable to the start of the rappels/cable protected down climbing.

Protection 

10 quick draws. Bolted anchors. 70m rope for descent or 2*60m
