6 Pitch trad route - 5,4,2,4+,5,4
Leads to the south summit of Torre Grande
Classic trad route of the towers, with the polish to prove it. Only bolt is found on the very last pitch, so more like VS 5a than F5.

I lead P1, Patrick did P2, but then got stuck behind a very slow party. In the end he climbed back down the entire pitch, and we abseiled off to the ground.

Pitches 1 and 3 are great. Quite a lot of broken rock on pitch 2 and the pitch to the summit had a lot of loose rock, also lacking hangers on 2 of the three bolts mentioned. Probably a two and a half star route.

What an amazing climb! I led P1,3,5. P1 was nowhere near as bad with the polish as I thought (try Tigers don't Cry at Shorn Cliff if you wanna see real polish) and was as people say around VS 5a, the crux is the first bulge. P2 was nothing special, P3 is easy and amazing with jugs galore and loads of bolts/gear. P4 is a lot of climbing with one hard move just over mid way but very good. P5 is a doddle. The abseil is great fun.

Lovely airy traverse. First pitch felt hard. Fab freehanging ab descent between the towers.

Not that much polish considering.

bobpilgrem 26/Jun/15 Lead O/S

Lead first 4 pitches, Jon led final pitch to top out. Polish doesn't really detract from quality as holds are all positive.Pitches all interesting with obvious bolted belays. VS 4c/5 a ? Abseil descent long and tricky-5 abseils in total, the gully between towers very loose.

Led pitch 1 and the big groove pitch (amazing!) Flavio led the traverse, rob led the sketchy loose bit. Topped out in hail to a frozen flavio. Best abseil descent I've ever done. Through the middle of the towers.

Lead it all. P1 is the hard bit. P3 up the flake and the traverse is awesome. One hard move on P4. Didn't place a single nut and only used 2 cams. Felt like VS.

Led even pitches as per Kohler guide (V,IV,V,V,III). Good route that puts you in some interesting positions, felt about vs5a. Only P1 has any significant polish. Made up our own abseil descent which was somewhat exciting.

Fiona Reid 19/Jul/13 AltLd O/S

Done in 5 pitches, led 1, 3 and 5. Pitch 1 is nowhere near as polished as I'd expected. Pitch 3 is simply stunning (so so glad I'd taken cams!!), with a totally out there traverse along the flake crack. Pitch 4 is pretty damn good too. A really nice climb.

difficult to work out the decent in the dark! look for a tunnel on the west face to enter the west side of the gully between the west and north towers.

VS 5a more appropriate? Certainly not a fully bolted trad route. Decent warm-up for us, not too polished.
