The route climbs up two dièdres and is dominated by a two large slanting yellow overhangs. The second is the larger. Medium protection with some pegged stances. A set of nuts and Friends 2 1/2–3 are suggested. The first pitch is said to be off-putting.
Access: From the cable car station take the road to the hairpin bend then cross over to the cliff and go down along its base past the scree cone and a little past Peperina’s start to a few metres past a yellow, W-shaped overhang. There is a red mark (15 minutes).
Description: (Treat with caution.)
1. V 45m. Climb up a small and white dièdre, then another dièdre to flakes and find a stance on a small ledge a little further on.
2. V+ 40m. Climb a grassy crack, which gradually widens, on the slab leading left to flakes and follow these to a tree and stance.
3. V+ 40m. Climb up the edge of a large flake to below a first yellow overhang. Enter and follow a dièdre/crack under the overhang (peg) rightwards to its end. Avoid a flake and climb a dièdre/chimney for 10–15 metres to a terrace on the left.
4. V+ 45m. Go up a slab on the edge of the chimney until underneath a large second overhang. A short ledge takes you to a wide crack which cuts the slab from left to right beneath the overhang. Follow the crack to a niche.
5. VI 45m. Continue climbing the crack/dièdre/chimney to large jammed blocks. Traverse rightwards, avoid a small pillar and climb a small difficult dièdre (2 pegs) that delimits it. Climb up flakes and a short easy chimney to trees and a stance.
6. III 25m. Climb a mix of slabs and vegetation to reach the N Ridge.
Descent: Descend the N Ridge to the top of Via Da Capo and abseil down it.

andrzej kierzek 18 Aug, 2018 Lead dnf Climbed first pitch with difficulty using trad protection. Section between two flakes, where I had to climb grass was particularly scary. The slab at the start of pitch 2 was not bolted. Abseiled from pitch 1 stance (1 bolt, 1 peg).
