5 pitches. One of the most well known and busy waterfalls in Italy! The start can be WI 4 but is usually climbed out with stairs to the top. The second pitch is a short section with a gaping hole in the ice at the bottom. From the second pitch to the last three pitches is a 10 minute walk up along the creek bed. The last three pitches are usually fat and to descend you walk off on the left side at the top of the last pitch. Beware the sluice at the very top which can release huge amounts of freezing water onto the route with no warning!

WARNING: the LHS of the fall is not formed. We ended on the RHS, which we later discovered to be prone to sudden releases of water from the pumping station above. Nevertheless, it made for a lovely afternoon stroll. Perfect introductory material to ice climbing. Lots of small waterfalls connected by snowy paths around semi-frozen lakes. Soloed/simu-climbed the first half.

Pitches 1- 6 The ice had degraded considerably. Huge chunk of the 1st pitch (which was thin anyway) had fallen in. Much busier start, but the crowds soon thinned after 2nd pitch. The 5th Pitch was short, but committing and vertical. Really enjoyable.
