150m, 6 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A deservedly popular route that is the perfect introduction to Dolomite trad. The rock is mainly solid and, although not always logical, the route is varied and enjoyable. There are cemented belays throughout, but scant fixed gear en-route.

Start at the base of the south arete by a piton and a faded red mark below a groove.
1) III, 25m. Climb the groove then move left to a belay below a short corner.
2) IV-, 30m. Climb the corner then follow the arete with enjoyable exposed climbing to a comfortable stance.
3) IV, 30m. Continue following the arete to a stance below a yellow arete.
4) IV, 30m. Climb to a piton then traverse right to reach a chimney. Climb this rightwards then move back left on easier rock to a belay in a break in the arete.
5) IV-, 30m. Climb rightwards to reach a good ledge, overcome a crack then move left and back right to squeeze into a chimney to a belay behind a flake.
6) IV, 25m. Be careful not to go direct here. Drop down a little and traverse right through a vague tunnel before following a shallow chimney behind a flake. Belay below a corner with a gully to the right (easier variant).
7) IV+, 20m. Climb the slightly polished but well-pegged corner-crack then continue with easier climbing to a belay below the summit cross. It is also possible to climb the easier gully on the right, but you'd end up missing the best pitch.
8) III, 20m. Climb the amenable slab above to reach the summit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A very popular and fun introduction to the Dolomites, but not quite as good as it looks. Anything from 3 to 7 pitches, with numerous cemented belay places. The crux is the final pitch, but it is avoidable.

βeta: Start is not obvious from the Rockfax description. There is a worn area below a broad gully just left of a tricky step in the traverse path at the foot of the cliff. We scrambled up the left side of this gully to find a belay ring below the polished corner of pitch 2.

Martin Bennett 20 Sep - beware the Rockfax description of the start. It should simply read: scramble up the obvious gully for about a hundred feet or so to find a huge iron ring on the left. This is the start proper.

Gilster 7 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S First trad route in the Dolomites for us. Be careful when nearing the middle/top as the Rockfax guide belay points do not match the actual points. We alternated leads and when we were about to do our 7 we were actually on 6 (according to this description) so I made the mistake of going direct. When you see a gigantic chock stone on your right (about 3m big) GO UNDER IT and you will find a belay point then walk along a loose gully then climb up the other side ...simples!! Stunning climb - used a few nuts, slings and cams to compliment the odd bit of fixed gear. Quality climb

brianrunner 20 Sep, 2010 AltLd Excellent route goes up a very steep arete for the first few pitches. The last pitch is a polished crack which is VS 4c. It can be avoided by a loose looking gulley to the right but the crack is very worthwhile. The WWI relics on the decent are the best in the area IMHO and this mountain had the some of the most intense fighting in WWI. Probably best done midweek as it can get busy!

Jamie Simpson - Alpine Dragons 8 Jul, 2006 AltLd O/S good route. Polished, especially the avoidable last pitch. My italian sucks. Couldn´t understand what these Italian couple were after. They just kept starring at our climbing gear and gibbering. Eventually I leant them an extra set of nuts and then suddenly it became apparent. They had none thinking it was sport route! How slow can I be!

AndyP 8 Jul, 2006 AltLd O/S Decent route. The crux is the last pitch which is probably VS 4c on a polished wall to the right of an easy gully so is aviodable.The rest of the route is a good bit easier.There is very little insitu gear. An Italian couple were climbing behind us with only extenders (they were carrying no pro at all) and they were stressed. Very interesting WW1 archeology on top.
