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.
I led the first hardest pitch V+
Not that much polish considering.
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.
p1 M, p2 R, p3 F, p4 M, p5 F

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.
Led pitches 1, 3, 5. Steep and tricky on P1 - definitely woke me up!
Led all pitches, tempted to return for variation Diretti Dimai
Great mountain day, first pitch is super polished, but the other pitches are fine. Awesome abseil between the towers on the way down.

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 last Pitch
Loved this, great fun P1, although polished there are other foot placement options, enjoyed the traverse under the roof. Dropped one shoe at belay under P4 waving away what i thought was a large bee but was actually a butterfly borrowed partners shoe to finish. Couple with unusual descent through tunnel. Led 1,3,4,5,6
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.

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.
tried this the day before but retreated before the weather hit so determined this time. got soaked to the skin and the abbed the line from the top.
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.

Descent not as nice as the guidebook makes out
Second pitch only, was planning to lead the last, but thunderstorm was approaching so decided it would be quicker if Stuart lead. Very polished first pitch, was tricky.

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

P1 only, polished - VS-HVS
Returned for another go, AMAMM raind from 2nd pitch on!
Backed off after first pitch due to rain

A great climb - 1st pitch polished finshed route in a mixture of rain and hailstones which made the last pitch challenging
|Andy Clarke||02/Aug/06||AltLd O/S||
Led Ps 1,3,5.
Lead pitches 1,3,4,6
First Dolomite Climb, found rock loose and apparently slippy, was unhappy in PA's but could have led it, a good start
