These are definitely high on my to-do list. When I was in the Dolomites in August the Wiessner-Kees was the one route that practically every local I spoke to said was a must-do.
How about the Frisch-Corradini on the Rifugio? As good as the Castiglioni-Detassis? Much harder?
The Frisch - Corradini is supposed to be fantastic too, and a very logical line. However it is somewhat harder, more sustained at V rather than IV. I was there with clients who were not super experienced rock climbers so the Castiglioni-Detassis was the better choice for us at the time... it was a full day!
I would love to go back for the Frisch-Corradini though, and am planning a return trip next September so maybe.
Hope you enjoy the area and the routes! All the best,
