180m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The original and harder start to the Schober/Kleisl (Rossi) route. Considerably harder than the more common variant but these initial pitches are arguably the best.
1) III, 35m. Scramble up easy ground until you reach a leftward sloping ramp.
2) VII-, 35m. Go direct for a few metres until you reach a large vertical slab. Teeter left across this with delicate moves (often an fixed sling) traversing for 3m then trend diagonally left on ever easier ground to a good belay on a ledge where you join the Schober/Kleisl (Rossi). © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This is an alternative start for the Schober/Kleisl route that traverses in from the right with a pitch of VII-. The climbing is strenuous and technical though very well protected.

First route in the dolomites. Great rock and interesting climbing especially on the first vii - pitch.

Great route recommended as a good alpine grade VII (which i believe is what the guide book we used described it as) One very crimpy move round a corner at the end of the crux section onto the easier ground. Very enjoyable route.

I think this is the route. I have it listed as Rossi's Route VI+ on the 1st tower. David led it all.
