Nice! Long, safe and spectacular but busy, even on a Monday morning. Good alternative to the Alta Via 2 Route to Pisciadu Hut.

First VF - great fun and very lucky to pretty much have it to ourselves. Climbed most of it on the rock apart from the first (wet) section. Descended via 676 to extend the day.

Amazing route even though it was ridiculously busy despite early start. No need to pull on cables...

Nice weather, started quite late morning and it was huge queues. We climbed in the queues all time. Nice views and easy access. No wonder it is so popular

First half and bridge only as went up Torre Exner. Still a fair bit of snow on path 666.
Fiona Reid - 15/Jul/14 with Mike
Great VF, on rock all the way. Nice refugio at the end, we took the long way down path 679 (I think)
TomGB - 13/Jul/14 with Stewart Moody, Adam Butler
Lovely route, started at 7am to avoid the crowds. Still lots of snow on the long way down
katiep - 12/Jul/14 with Callan
Used cable up to the end of the first section then rock only after that. Got there early so wasn't too busy. Decent down route 666 gully which wad good fun.

Fun VF, fun descent down snowy 666 gully
Trevers - 10/Jul/14 with BStar, wjcdean
Didn't pull on the cable at all, quite a fun climb (including stemples and pegs). One of my favourite VFs in the area.

Having climbed this route before at night, during the day I decided to solo the route whilst taking a friend up it. Made it flow & much more enjoyable. Not ideal at the hard top section when it began to snow!!!

A lot of fun singing and being silly. Beer at the top. Storm when we got down: good job we didn't climb! The VF is easy, busy and pretty polished but worthwhile. 2 hours despite congestion; came down route 666, 1hr 30.

Boring first bit, then the second part got much more interesting - possibly due to a lot of mist that made for quite a spooky atmosphere especially shortly before the ladder and while at the bridge. Amazing views on the way down (Also found a little, icy cave on the way back)

Quite tame, but very pretty and a good fun route. Lots of people, even starting quite early on a weekday - lower section involved a lot of queueing behind people who didn't really know what they were doing, but they seemed to mostly be filtered out by the upper pitches. The popularity of this route is showing - the rock is very polished and the protection is in a pretty poor state at present, with duct tape(!) covering frayed bits and loose pegs. Could do with recabling.

Lovely route, but get there early or be prepared for a lot of queuing as this route is silly busy in summer/weekends.

great classic vf. our 2nd time. its very busy though. the trick is to go late- maybe after 2pm , making sure there are no storms on the way. we continued on a great 10hr day on the av2 to ref boe, then up piz boe, then back down with a 2-3 other smaller vfs thrown in.
