Rockfax Description
Start near the top of the scree cone, just right of the Vonbank tunnel at the base of a rightwards trending crack.
1) IV, 40m. Climb the crack above to reach the top of a small detached pillar. Pull through a bulge to reach a small terrace and a ring belay.
2) IV-, 20m. Take the right-hand of two parallel cracks to a stance below a deep cave.
3) IV-, 30m. Exit left from the cave then climb direct to gain a corner. At the corner's end traverse right to climb an enjoyable slab just right of the main crack-line. Belay below and at the right-hand side of a yellow roof.
4) III, 40m. Move right from under the roof then climb another slab to the right of the crack-line direct. Continue more easily right to reach a large ledge. Here variants Alta and Bassa meet.
5) III+, 30m. Climb direct up the slabs above to a thread belay to the left and below the yellow face. This pitch is shared with Alta.
6) IV-, 20m. Follow a chimney gully to the left to a stance by a flake.
7) IV-, 20m. Continue left then move more easily back right to belay below the right-hand edge of a yellow roof.
8) I, 25m. Move right from under the overhang then follow a grassy ledge back left to a stance in a yellow niche.
9) III, 40m. Exit left from the niche and follow a ramp easily to a good spike belay on a scree-covered shoulder. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
It's also worth mentioning this route has multiple belay stances at almost every pitch seperated by a couple of meters. Therefore an option for larger groups.

Climbed first 5 pitches pretty quickly with pleasant climbing. Like many before us had route-finding issues on P6. Description says follow a chimney gully to the left, and this is marked on topo. It's tempting to follow the obvious gully to the left of the belay, which is rather chossy. There's even a bolt near the top that seems like a belay. However heading up from this into 'pitch 7' it was obvious the climbing was far harder and on very broken but steep rock. The multitude of slings and tat confirming this is a mistake many make and then retreat from. I down climbed and we planned on re-finding the route, but then a storm hit and lightning/hail forced retreat. I suspect the correct line for P6 is as others have said - not the obvious left gully but a smaller one to its right (above the belay).

MP - 2 seconds. Some nice climbing but lots of chossy mess and loose rock. in situ gear is mainly ancient.

WLNesfield ?/Sep/16 Lead O/S

Belay stances as per the guidebook occasionally chossy - easy to climb on past to get to better ones close by.

Wine and climb 30/Jul/16 AltLd O/S

Followed topo up to pitch 6. There seemed to be 2 gully's though of which we picked the left one. After the initial left hand gully scramble the next pitch turned into reasonably tough v+ climbing. We found ourselves at multiple slings and needed to ab 20m to rejoin the route. Looks like many people have also made this mistake!! We should have taken the right hand gully not the left one. Topo from rockfax doesn't make the route very clear so a fair bit of dolomites route finding may be needed!

Great route up to pitch 6 then pretty loose and poor quality, climbed in about 2 hours, no one else on the route due to the forecast, got up and down just before a huge thunder storm.

Really enjoyed this until pitch 8. Multiple looks to see if anything grade IV could be found - I followed multiple topos and signs of a lot previous traffic up a left sloping ramp (piton at top) and back right. What I went up was ~V/V+ overhanging with loose rock finishing to the right and below a large cave looking into a deep gully. The next pitch is meant to grade II but what loomed above was definitely not. Abseiled down gully to rejoin where everyone else seemed to go. The amount of tat, mallions and two jammed ropes suggest we weren't the first and probably won't be the last!

Good until pitch 8. Definitely went the right way as per numerous topos but abbed down 25m to get onto something more solid and saner.It seems a lot of folk do this as the ab point looked heavily used!

Nice route, great day. Led the last few pitches. Started too far to the left and Steven led a couple of wandering pitches before we joined the route proper a couple of pitches up. Judging from all the tat and polish we clearly weren't the first. Still weren't immediately certain once we were on the route due to topo inadequacies.

Not particularly inspiring climb. At the big ledge took a line on the right, just to the left of the arete. loose start but then fine climbing at about E1 5b (if you're tall). Good finish to the route.

Fiarly straight forward route finding; until the top! The kletterstieg bridge has been destroyed therefore could not walk of the noraml way. Concidered rapping down route but stuidents tired and a bit fragged. so short roped them up to summit (large steep snow patches and then tried to walk down the tunnels from the summit, 30m into the tunnels the way was blocked by ice and was flooded. Walked of via foot path to N and then into valley, = a very long day.

Second route in the dolomites. Forgot to clip a runner on the third pitch so some of it felt way more runout than it should have. An awesome route. Efficiency was upped on this one!
