|Flash Estivo, Colonnata Centrale||WI5|
|160m, 4 pitches. three or four pitches|
2 hours from parking minutes of uphill climbing to base of route.
a lot of low angle ice in front of base of climb...climb up and to the left to the base of the icefall where there is a small belay stance that is sheltered...otherwise climb boulders on far right and then traverse across to the belay stance.
The first pitch was about 50 meters to a cave like belay on climbers left. We stopped here because of the large icicles hanging over the rest of the route and the Sun light dancing on them.
