/ Dolomites - Messner Slab....
We're planning on climbing it on Tuesday and I wanted some advice on what gear to take. I know protection is pretty minimal on the route so it'd be nice to head up there light weight.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Some pictures and info here (well down the page)
We did it in the day from the valley north of Cortina using mountain bikes for the approach. The climbing itself was probably the simplist part of the day. Descend the ridge to the East.
