You'll find this route just after Via Persephone and just before Via "La fuga dal Hades". It's a nice, easy route but with an alpine feel to it. Lots of hourglasses and pockets. Highlights: The second pitch is very long and a lot of fun. The third pitch has a fantastic 5a overhang with big jugs and a lot of air underneath you.

4 out of 5 stars Via Helena

Loved that second pitch! Rope drag on the last pitch - couldn't enjoy the perfect moves.
