<< Don Quixote
 
Pisoni - Castiglioni >>
900m, 25 pitches. Starting as for Don Quixote, climb the left fork of the "Swallow's Tail" groove lines to the huge roof, passed by squeezing through a little hole. From the terrace wander up the immaculate pocketed slabs (many possible variations), exiting via chimneys on the right. Beautiful climbing, perfect rock, varied in style and continually interesting. Best climbed late in the season as the hole can be blocked by ice and the chimneys wet early in the year.

Took an interesting line somewhere between the Normal route and the Left Variant at about E3 5b. Missed the last cable car and had to walk all the way down.
