160m, 5 pitches. A great climb with straightforward route-finding following the striking Dimai Crack - a must for chimney enthusiasts. 1) III, 40m. Start at the foot of the large gully between Cima Sud and Cima Nord. Climb the gully for 18m before following a left-trending chimney to the foot of the face and Dimai Crack proper. 2) V+, 30m. Climb the crack past a large flake for 10m before stepping left to the base of a corner. Climb the corner and subsequent crack for 20m. Belay in the niche at the top. 3) V+, 30m. Continue up the corner-crack for 30m, passing a small overhang on the left, and belay below an overhang breached by a large crack. 4) VI-, 40m. Take the overhanging crack direct on good holds and follow the natural line for another 30m until a large ledge is reached. 5) II, 30m. Traverse 15m left on the ledge and follow a loose but easy chimney to the summit. FA. Degasper, Dimai, Dimai 1932

Good route. I led first easy pitch, Chris ran pitches 2 & 3 together (by accident). I did pitch 4 and then Chris did a bolted alternative last pitch at about F6a. Quite a bit of fixed gear on the tricky bits. Rockfax topo has misleading positions for the belays. The VI- pitch starts quite a bit lower than the indicated position.

Great route, nice steep exposed positions, old school crack system so stemming and a bit 3D. Led V And VI pitches.

Quite afew bolts on this one but take a rack too! Excellent climbing, better than Myriam and not that much harder.
