160m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great climb with straightforward route-finding following the striking Dimai Crack - a must for chimney enthusiasts.
1) III, 40m. Start at the foot of the large gully between Cima Sud and Cima Nord. Climb the gully for 18m before following a left-trending chimney to the foot of the face and Dimai Crack proper.
2) V+, 30m. Climb the crack past a large flake for 10m before stepping left to the base of a corner. Climb the corner and subsequent crack for 20m. Belay in the niche at the top.
3) VI-, 20m. Continue up the corner-crack for 30m, passing a small overhang on the left, and belay below an overhang breached by a large crack.
4) VI-, 30m. Take the overhanging crack direct on good holds and follow the natural line for another 30m until a large ledge is reached.
5) II, 30m. Traverse 15m left on the ledge and follow a loose but easy chimney to the summit. © Rockfax

Guy Arnold 18 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S Brilliant route. Exposure on 3 and 4th pitches is amazing. Don't go out onto the face on pitch 4 despite the inviting chalk - it's significantly harder!

Sam Husband 27 Aug, 2015 AltLd O/S I'm not experienced in alpine grades but P4 was technically quite hard, however the whole route is bolted for all the hard moves.

bigbobbyking 16 Aug, 2014 AltLd Good route. I led first easy pitch, Chris ran pitches 2 & 3 together (by accident). I did pitch 4 and then Chris did a bolted alternative last pitch at about F6a. Quite a bit of fixed gear on the tricky bits. Rockfax topo has misleading positions for the belays. The VI- pitch starts quite a bit lower than the indicated position.
