[VF Brigate Tridentina 2004, 4 kb]750m. of ascent, 400m of VF. Probably the most popular VF in the region, it's possible to climb the entire route on the rock - apart from the spectacular bridge at the finish, obviously

A great route and we got a clean run being at the end of the season. Coffee at the top, brilliant!

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!!!

Easy approach, Rifugio at the top, easy descent
Ian_Whitfield - AltLd - 12/Sep/13 with Whitty2012

My first VF. Good route, good view and a little exposed.

A night accent during a full on the famous bridge made the climb worth while.

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.

JulianD - Solo - 06/Sep/11 with Paul B, David H

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)
Willbert - 27/Aug/11

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.

Great route and spectacular walk out on path 676. Shame about the crowds and folk out of their depth.
Mike_Watson_99 - 16/Jul/11 with Fiona

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

An amazing route - it goes on forever! The top section is very steep and sustained. We were lucky to avoid any queueing so managed quite a fast ascent.

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.

Mega-busy, over 100 'climbers' on the route! At least the slow rate of ascent meant we had time to climb on the rock and enjoy the fantastic holds.
