170m. Descent via track and two abseils (30m and 35m) - so don't forget your rope(s).

Re-opened with new metal line and new information board. Follow the yellow dot track starting at a metal "privado" sign the other side of the small dry riverbed.

Straight up with metal ladder steps the entire way, no need for climbing shoes.

Badam 26 Feb - A bit of a trek in as we went bush, once you cross the dry river bed head straight up looking for yellow paint and follow this to the start of the route, but once you get there it’s worthwhile

ewanjp 2 Jan, 2018 Lead O/S Don't follow the green dots from the car park - they don't lead to the start.... Bit of a stemple ladder compared to vfs in France and Italy. Very sustained and not one for those who don't like exposure. Did the ab in one using two 60m ropes - nice and easy.

Phil Murray 18 Dec, 2015 - Great trip up a ladder. the metal bits took 45 minutes. The 35 abseil, we managed on a 60m rope, but *only* just. Check your rope - it needs to be 60m. Whole trip only 2.5 hours. Great views & exposure.

Oujmik 17 Nov, 2015 - Steep and pretty sustained compared to the VFs we've done in the dolomites. It's pretty much just a stemple ladder up a near vertical rib on the edge of the face but it deserves the 4A grade as it is consistently steep and awkward in places. Descent via two abs is much better than it looks from the way up - anchors are good and the path down is fine. Just doable in two on a 60m rope despite the signs. Extra excitement (and extra time waiting for the down draught to pass) was added to our ascent by what appeared to be an extended helicopter rescue just above us but turned out to be a training session for the local fire service.

Mark Eddy 10 Nov, 2015 - After the VF we followed a continuation scramble onto the summit plateau. Overall grade for the scramble i'd give as a 3. There is some fixed protection that although maybe not so trustworthy at least helps mark the route through some very complexed terrain. A very good day out. Car to car in 5 hours

Juan S ?Nov, 2015 - continued with the scramble to the top (see orange house mini-guide for details if interested in this). The first abseil from the top of the ridge was longer than the guide describes (either that or we abseiled from the wrong place). Seemed around 40 metres - had to do it in two abseils as couldn't downclimb last section.

valentinesbabe 14 Feb, 2012 Solo O/S Nice VF, but would have been improved by maybe some traverse sections rather than the constant ladder. Easy ascent. Interesting scramble from the top and then two descent abseils. A worthwhile birthday trip :-)
