Good but a few very loose sections.

The odd loose bit doesn't detract from what is a pretty good route. When you first see the cable car station and think it's not far away but there's still *a lot* of climbing to go. Got the cable car down to save knees and need to carry glacier gear then bus back to start point. Not too hard but a serious route which needs decent weather.

UKC Testing - Jan/14

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.

Had quite the solo day out. Did the whole of the route as a rock climb (without using the metal work for holds, just for safety). Big gap in the wires in the middle and other bits where the wires were connected using old prussic 5mm cord! Some pretty technical stuff on the traverse. Got to the cable car station and it was shut, with loads of builders building things. Nearly blagged a lift down with some equipment in the cable car but the foreman threw me out. Walked (west?) down and down and down back to the road. Brilliant.

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
