300m, 9 pitches. Possibly UK MVS as an indicator of the difficulty of the climbing alone.

Superb line up the obvious right hand corner. Three approach pitches lead to 4 pitches of sustained bridging. Nice couple of pitches staring from a "window" lead to the summit.

Is an Alpine route and the approach and descent can be made harder by late snowfall, protection is a mixture of trad gear and some in-situ.

This is a good route choice in hot weather as it doesn't get much sun. At the top of the corner we followed the Classics guide description which looked awfully chossy but was ok. From shoulder head up and right towards the broken, gravely gulley on right. Climb this with a couple of easy steps to a harder looking chockstone. The left wall has 2 or 3 moves at V before a walk out over the col and scramble down. The final scree descent is a bit unpleasant but doesn't take too long. Overall a 2* trad mountaineering day out!

Did the harder grade V direct start which was the highlight. Beautiful climbing. The descent description made no sense to us from where we were. Instead, from the shoulder, head to the steep wall that forms the summit. A gargantuan chockstone is suspended above a gully on the left. Just right of this chockstone climb an easy wall and a rightwards leading crack (Grade II/III, peg in situ below final crack). From here go down the East side to an ab point (tat in situ) and make a 20m abseil. Walk down rightwards from here.

awesome route, long and runout with some fantastic exposure in the top pitches. performed an alternate start to merit a tougher grade for the first two pitches. Descent gully was covered in snow and very dark, couldnt fit through the 'squeeze' so took the grey wall to the left option, much easier in my opinion!

Brilliant sustained old school bridging on an awesome looking line, did the two pitch continuation to the summit. Descent gully is hideous.

Avoid finishing up the chossy gully as described in 'Classic Dolomites Climbs'. Instead, from the top of the final pitch described continue to the summit (2 pitches of III) from where one abseil (equipped) will take you to the large chockstone described in the descent description. This avoids 2 pitches of death choss and a *very* tight squeeze through a chockstone at the top of the gully.

The start is not as bad as described, yet the last two pitches as you leave the corner prove alot easier than claimed. Less continuous IV climbing than i imagined.
