Location: International : Europe : Italy : Dolomites : Paso di Giau : Torrione Marcella Westface ... (5.8)
By: Tim Wolfe When: Sep 9, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: It can be a bit confusing with all the names so if you are looking for this (Torrione Marcella peak) it is a sub-peak of the Lastoni di Formin formation - the left hand aspect of that large plateaus West Face. Many maps will not list this sub peak name but should have Croda da Lago (ridge just behind it to the East) and Lastoni di Formin formation written on them. Right next to this route (Paolo Amedeo)is a bolted route - the first 50 meters only have 2 bolts but the rest is well bolted. Be awar... more >>

Comments: If you have a high resolution map of the area, this specific view shows the West face of the Lastoni di Formin plateau. Behind it (tips of crags sticking up) is the Croda Da lago ridgeline which is accessed down hill a few kilometers (down road) on path 437 which skirts north of this face and turns back up to that formation. The left hand aspect of this photo has Nikibi (6b+ - about 5.11a) and Paolo Amedeo (about 5.8) ending together and then descending the gully at the far left of the photo. Th... more >>

Comments: This is a great variation start to Bourbon street or Frogland stopping at the same first pitch belay. The protection is good and the 3 bolts are in perfect places. My new preferred start to either route.

Comments: I think this route is better than Lotta Balls with 1/10 the traffic. A great option when the other two popular routes are busy. Do not belay at Lotta Balls first belay if you want to stay on an independent line and do the whole route - just continue up right of that line to the great two bolt belay on a ledge a bit farther up. From there climb straight up the fantastic varnished face and either make your own belay or better yet clip into the Black Magic belay. Next go straight over the bulge, t... more >>

Comments: I turned the final roof half way along the diagrammed line - cool, easy, bolt at the lip (not needed but I clipped it anyhow) then moved up and left to the belay.

Comments: You can climb through the roof directly above this climber. Good crack, bolt at the lip, fun way the finish this pitch and it goes at 5.8 or 5.9 unbelievably.

Comments: You do not need to traverse this far left unless you want to. Just turn the roof at the large section right through a section of jugs in the obvious cracks/weaknesses of the roof. There is a bolt at the lip as you turn the roof in this place.

Comments: Another stunning classic Red Rocks traditional line. Be aware that it is in the sun in the morning - good to know on hot days. A couple comments - Pitch 2 description states to climb the left facing dihedral - good, but the face with crack to the left is also 5.8, good protection and wonderful movement. On pitch 4 I would have liked to have 2 blue (#3 camalots). It was a bit run out with just one in the wide crack crux high on the pitch. Finally if you want to skip the pitch 5 wide chimney... more >>

Comments: Yes the comment was on the sign sucking, not the route. Kind of a bit of controversy back then about the bolts though.

Comments: yep. back clip alright. I kind of laugh at the concept though I try not too back clip. However this was never an issue the first 20 years I climbed and the first 30 years that guy leading climbed. Neither of us now with 75 years of combined climbing experience ever remember a biner unclipping (breaking yes, unclipping no). What is the actual statistical data on this back clipping? A case report, myth or actual science? I suspect the former. I do remember a case reported in climbing in the 1980's... more >>

Comments: Thank you everyone for all the work to bring this route back. Being a seeker of the obscure but quality lines this is a route I always wanted to do but was too afraid to try. To my surprise the morning I left for a quick trip I saw the December post suggesting it was safe - and jumped on. I enjoyed this more than Mountain beast or Rainbow buttress which we did the day prior so if you only can do one - consider this. It is a great mix - thin bolted slab, some good 5.9 and 5.10 crack, a bit of eas... more >>

Comments: I am a bit stingy with stars - good route, awesome winter climb, well worth doing. It goes pretty quickly so consider doing one of the other harder routes to the left, then walk over and tick this for a full day of climbing. Good mix of crack skills required.

Comments: While this route is not in the same caliber as the classics over to the left, it is well worth doing and I did not find it loose or scary - especially if you do the first six pitches, rappel and then do another route (quite easy to accomplish in one day). Pitches 2, 5 and 6 are all good climbing on thin edges with either good bolts or bomber wires (tiny crack of pitch 6). It has safe fixed belays allowing you to quickly descend. We just stepped right and climbed Rainbow buttress immediately afte... more >>

Comments: yes - I had 2 #3 and 1 #4 BD cams and that was perfect though I shuffled them up the fat crack which I agree was a very fun wide crack.

Comments: I only did pitch 1 because that is all I knew was there. Probably 10b. After you get to the first bolt there are bolts every few feet - so if you need some practice on 5.10 slabs without the usual runnout risk this is a good route to work on slab technique with little to no risk.

Comments: Beautiful climbing. Not at all runnout. Easily done as 2 pitches linking 1+2 or 2+3. Should not be missed if you are up here. Only "hard" move was the very last move of the route, otherwise 5.9

Comments: The route description here is excellent and helps you find the line very well. Too bad this does not get more ascents so it would clean up a bit. The second pitch is a great and interesting pitch - the downside being that to climb above the last bolt you are over your rope and it will flip you over/burn the back of your leg if you fall at this crux - which is definatly harder than 10a I think. Tricky gear too.

Comments: For those, like me, who initially had no other source other than this web site to do this route, I will provide a bit more information to the future climber.
Location: West of Mammoth go to Mammoth, pick up your wilderness permit for entry at the Shadow Lakes trail head at Agnew Meadows. Drive (or take bus depending on season and time of day) toward the Devils Post pile two choices park at Red Meadows and hitch hike back to Agnew Meadows (allowing for a circular hike coming in from Agnew ... more >>

Comments: This is a nice, easily accessed line with clean rock and easy escape and descent. It really is pretty big - more in the 10+ pitch range, so it is a good warm up for harder long lines. Lots of fat cracks but good feet so very few offwidth moves.

Comments: Fun route, long pitches, sustained climbing, less traveled, loose rock so a bit more real alpine rock climbing than the trade routes. Matt's comments above were invaluable to finding a cleaner, more enjoyable line up the face, as there are many many possibilities.I will add a couple comments to his for those who wish more data. I also drew a topo that I have attached.

Approach: Walk towards Jackass pass area until you are to the left of the wall and can see the obvious ledge systems. Follow the... more >>

Comments: This is a thoughful route that is definately worth climbing, getting warmed up for other harder stuff in the area and it moves into the shade sooner than the Mean Mistreater wall. The moves to the first bolt are 5.6 for 2 feet so probably don't need protection. The moves under the roof half way up take a 3 inch cam to the right - the left crack is miniscule. A 0.3-0.7 cam likely could fit high up before the belay. No other gear is needed or even available.
