Great rock, great protection, great fun!

Description 

First three pitches are the best(crack system) but stay wet a little longer. Cool climbing in bomber rock, with a hand crack crux in the second pitch (one 5.7 move). The climbing eases in later pitches, and rock is less solid.

Location 

Park at Paso di Giau and walk to the north to the southwest face. Ascendtrail with som easy 5th grade climbing to the start.
At the top, walk to the north and then to the west. Walk around the rock with the hut on top and back to the pass.

Protection 

Some pitons, fixed anchors. Standard rack and slings.

The guide book we used said about 30 minutes approach and one hour descent. I know I'm old, but more like an hour approach (lots of 3rd class) and over two hours descent - including part of that coming down an established via Ferrata. We came down north, than east as recommended by the Bernardi guide. I thought it would never end!
