This climb is in 10 logbooks, and on 8 wishlists.
A new start about 100m higher up the hill on the north face is designed so you can traverse from the lift. The cable is new and very tight now, but a bit shorter than before. Starts hard onto an easy slab and then a very beautiful ridge. Took the glacier down, meaning had to carry extra gear, but well worth it.

awfull condition .... large gaps between cables so as weather closed in we backed off as we wouldnt be able to see next cable.... bit gutted but the right decision

In my view this is the best VF in the Dolomites. In 2010 the cable was missing in sections which gave the whole thing more of an alpine feel. It has now been fully restored (2013) so it is well worth doing. Carry gear to decend via the glacier as the walk back to the col from the valley floor is a ball ache.

this is in a shocking state - many wires on slab are BROKEN or missing *requires* soloing some parts. Other wires are loose and very very dodgy. Its been closed since 2005/6 officically
However its a great route and quite ok if you are used to scrambling and can handle the exposure/unprotected parts

Long and strenuous. Route is officially closed due to poor state of cabling.

A fantastic, epic day. Snow on the ridge slowed us down, got the cable car times wrong and thought we have to spend the night in the toilets. Ended up leading three grateful Germans to safety on a three hour descent
