Via del Buco Alta Variant** V+
330m, 9 pitches. Via del Buco until big ledge then continue up often wet chimneys to finish
This climb is in 7 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Difficult to describe what we actually climbed, intending to do Alta variant. Went too far left along the ramp, ending up somewhere between Bassa and Alta variants for P1 (making it a traditionally protected and reasonably steep VS crack, my lead), went too far right of the Alta variant on P2 (Chris' lead), then continued up to join the Alta variant on a third pitch (roughly corresponding to P4 of Alta, my lead), climbed pitches 5 (Chris), 6 (me) of Alta, then found that the final pitches of Alta were wet (as they often are, apparently), went off-route up a gully for a pitch and a half looking for the final pitches of Bassa (Chris' lead, then my lead, followed by down climbing and abseiling) and then finished with pitches 6,7,8 9 of Bassa (done in two pitches - my lead for 6,7; Chris' for 8,9). The best pitch was probably P1, where we were off route (!) but much of the rest was also very pleasant.

Started up Magic Plaque, converged with Via del Buco at midway ledge and finished up origional finish, last pitch damp. But two really good pitches of climbing, which were only slightly spoiled by the wet start to the second pitch.
