Comments: This route may be followed on a rappel descent of the wall in less than perfect conditions. Two 165 foot ropes are required, and 4 abseils will bring one to the base of the wall. The upper anchor may be difficult to locate.

Comments: As an historical note, I've been looking at some of the notes I acquired during my days as a graduate student at UW (1968-1972) and as a member of the Outing Club. This isn't for certain, but Peter Koedt was likely the first ascensionist of this route. Even in 1968, this route had already attained a reputation for boldness and "don't fall" style on the first 25 feet. This route was done before 1968 in a very pure style. Jim Halfpenny always led the climb in Terray Mountain boots. A 1 1/2" angle ... more >>

Comments: The difficulty rating of this climb varies with the height of the leader; for anyone short, the final moves are pretty reachy and would be 5.10a; for taller climbers, the 5.9+ rating is accurate.

Comments: The wonderful "Preussriss," or Preuss Crack is evident in this photo. It was a landmark climb when first done prior to W.W. I by Paul Preuss...entirely without any protection. Currently rated at 5.7/5.8.

Comments: This is a major route on an Alpine summit, and coupled with the descent could result in an unplanned bivvy. Take plenty of water and some food, as this can be an arduous day of climbing when the descent is considered.

Comments: This climb is popular with beginners and has been climbed frequently by families with children. Not terribly aesthetic, but achieves a worthwhile summit by easy technical climbing.

Comments: I just repeated this route on another chilly day in order to complete the Torre Quarta Alta "Nomale" route, and again, found it extremely enjoyable. This climb receives the morning Sun and warms up nicely before any of the other popular routes become climbable.

Comments: The peak is also a favorite with the local Alpine Guides due to ease of access, relatively easy climbing, mostly abseil descent to the starting point and the Gondola lift.

Comments: The Punta della Cinque Dita (a.k.a. "Fuenffingerspitze") may be the most photographed mountain in the Dolomites, due to it's unusual appearance and ease of access for photographers.

Comments: Both climbs are usually done in sequence; first climb Torre Quarta bassa, then Torre Quarta Alta. The abseil to the ground is through a hole between a chockstone terrace and the two towers. It is reminiscent of caving.

Comments: This a great climb for a cold day, since it receives the morning Sun and is sheltered from the winds.
