600m, 25 pitches. This is a 600m water ice climb with brief sections of mixed up the NE face of Antelao, the 2nd highest peak in the Dolomites. It should be emphasised this is a long and series climb requiring a variety of excellent winter skills. Most people stay at the Galassi Rifugio before making an alpine start.
The climb follows a natural avalanche path so it’s essential the climb is undertaken with a safe snowpack. The ideal time to undertake this climb is on a cold early spring day though care must be taken with rockfall in the early morning.
