description

Approach 60 mins

From the parking in Valnontey, follow the climbers path on the true right hand side of the river to the third bridge, excluding the one in the village, signposted "Il Sentiero dei Troll". Cross the bridge and go up to the foot of the obvious gully line on the left, (often an avalanche cone.)

Route

350m vertical height of gully. 2 sections with a maximum of 80° for 10m.
There is quite a lot of walking between the climbing sections. a chore if there is a lot of snow.
All the belays are on the true left bank and are equipped with 10mm bolts and chains. Some of the pitches are 55m long.

Descent

Either walk down on the true left bank, (left looking downwards), faint path, depends on the snow conditions or abseil down the route, now equipped with double bolts and chains all the way on the true left bank. Need 2×60 m ropes, some of the belay points need a bit of effort to find.

remarks

Gets the sun in the morning
Possible to continue further up little ice bulges or cut the route short if the upper part is not in condition, too much sun.
Nice route, ideal for beginners and without too long an approach.
Be aware of the avalanche danger

Sensitive areas
There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.

gear

Head torch
Double 60m ropes.
