Topic - Trying to ID a route on the second Sella Tower

The Ivanator - on 29 Jul 2012
Just got back from a few good days in the Dolomites and am keen to identify a line we climbed on the South Face of the Second Sella Tower. After descending from the summit of tower I to the col between i & II we started up the Diedre Gluck (given UIAA 4) in the Emiliano Zozzi guide; from the belay on that route I veered too far right, initially covering broken ground at around 4, before reaching a sloping shelf with double pegs below a steep corner (possible stance), I continued up the corner which went at around UIAA 5+ probably HVS 4c in UK money, upper section was steep (overhanging in parts) and sustained, good holds and pro (including some pegs) but a little damp and loose in places ... reminiscent of a Boulder Ruckle HVS. At the top of the corner I exited left of a small roof then moved right to belay on a comfy platform with a cemented ring just below the summit, so obviously the route is well established.
The final corner I took is the dark line in the extreme upper right of this image (rightmost and shortest of the three obvious grooves).

Any help in identification much appreciated,

Ivan
