Hidden - 2nd O/S - 11/Aug/13

All to ourselves. More like 5 hours. Crux for us was penultimate pitch leaving the cave, fatigued. Really enjoyed the climbing. Nice easy descent on mainly well worn paths. Led P2,3,4,5,7,8,9, tried 10 backed off, and 11.

Hailstormed off after 4 pitches, shame as the crux 5th pitch looks fantastic, but we will return.

Hailstorm after 4th pitch and had to ab off along with 9 Italians! Was gutted we couldn't complete the route as I was really enjoying it.

A cracking day out. dropped my belay plate from the top of the second pitch - could have abbed off and re-started but we were already a bit late so pressed on and completed the route with an improvised krab brake, which worked fine. Led the crux corner pitch on one in-situ peg and had some uncertainty about the route of the penultimate pitch to/past the cave - proved to be quite a sting in the tail... with Chris Lyness and Pierce Ferris, who also swung leads.
ripper - AltLd - Jun/12 with Matt Chap

First multipitch in Dolomites. First route with Jack. I lead the two chimney pitches and got slightly stuck in both to Jack's great amusement (filmed). Lovely route and the first step on the road to the ultimate aim... (slightly tricky route finding over easier grade III ground just over half way up)
hlegge - AltLd O/S - May/12 with Jack Hodgson

Pitches swung... Ben then me, 11 in total, with me finishing off (Nice crux pitch to cave and amusing chimneying out of the cave)
slacky - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/11 with Ben

Followed a line of new bolts to the left of the real start for the first few pitches (6b ish climbing in places). As a result we ended missing the grand diedre pitch which is a shame as it looked good from the bottom. Good route for a short day and great views of the mighty Tofana
