Comments: The Nuvolau group include Averau and Gusela - all in one little crag just north of Passo Giau. We have separated Cinque Torri as its own group just due to all the small peaks and climbs there, but all these crags and small summits are adjacent to one another. Lastoni di Formin is right across the road from the same pass and Croda da Lago is adjacent to it. So all these crags/mountains are included in a single "group" as any climber would access them all from the same parking area or one very clo... more >>

Comments: Traverse then head up following red dots (often lost in the snow) over the col. At that point you descend back down and pick up trail 403 to your car. DO NOT try to go down right off of the routes despite all the false trails (vertical kitty litter below).

Comments: This is the right side of the south face of the mountain - buttress 1 and 2. This area contains many hard and classic lines of 10-18 pitches. However, the larger walls of the mountain as well as many other climbing sectors exist off to the left of this photo.

Comments: The Cassin route is on the Yellow overhanging face around the corner to the left of the Preussriss route. The best approach is from the point of this photo (the Forcella di Lavaredo) walking along the ridge at the bottom of the photo until under the route.

Comments: The direct line up Mayday Malefactor was a nice start with some interesting climbing - worth doing. The flake is pretty cool and totally bolt protected. The next pitch is fun but pretty fat - I had two #3 and two #4 and one #4.5 and used them all including moving several of them up the pitch as I went.

Comments: Crazy route. Totally worth doing for the unique climbing. Be sure you can strip everything off your body to make the squeeze moves on pitch 1 and on the cave pitch. To me the best pitch was the "5.9" hand crack. Just climb the overhanging corner straight above the belay (not to the right towards the off width) - it has great holds, good stemming and bomber gear. Continue straight up for a full 70 meters of great varied sized crack climbing to the belay in the cave (just as you run out of rope). ... more >>

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 436 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.
