Description:

This elegant line was first climbed by Comici in 1933. The climb starts near a very small cave and a commemorative plaque on the left hand side of the south ridge. The first pitch leads to a rap station about 25m up. The second pitch crosses to the right of the ridge after a couple of hard friction moves on a steep dihedral. The folowing 4-5 pitches go generraly up and to the right and pose route finding challanges. About 25m bellow the prominent overhanging dihedral traverse to the left to a belay station. Do not traverse to the felt too early. Then climb the imposing dihedral and traverse to the left again after a sequence of hard moves near three pins connected by cords. The last three pitches lead to the first platform. Traverse to the left to a large rap ring at the base of an easly wall leading to the peak. About 6 raps lead to the gully between Cima Grande and Cima Piccola which leads to the base of the climb.

4 out of 5 stars How do you say epic in Italian?

Nice route, except for the ledge that broke on me during the traverse, sending me on a 10-foot swing into the anchor, just before I had to lead the crux, and then the 7 hour rap ordeal when we mistook the overhanging sport route on the backside for the descent...

Beautifull line. Got rained on the last two pitches and the top of the raps.
