Beckoning tower of red granite, up north east from the hut. Fifteen established routes, well-bolted but with plenty of opportunity for gear. No slabs here! Crack and face climbing mostly.

Easiest route is poorly-protected 5b on the spigolo (ridge), hardest a 7c.

South-facing. Perfect for early and late season.

Getting There 

From the Capanna, head straight up the ridge, then make a steep traverse to a flatter area. In late winter, this was fine in snowshoes, 1 hr from the hut.

The hut is ~ 45 min from parking in All' Aqcua, up a well-trod trail.

Climbing Season

For the Switzerland area.

Weather station 8.3 miles from here

Excellent granite on the peak Poncione di Ruino, which is the most obvious and attractive peak looking north east from the Capanna Pianesco.Pitches go at 6a-6c, and cruxes easily aided on closely-spaced bolts.Just a ton of fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
