The crux is probably the first pitch as you climb up to gain the arete. Once on the arete follow it for three amazing pitches to the summit.
For the descent rappel down the east side of the tower from fixed anchors. Six 20m rappels or three 40m rappels hit the ground. If you are planning on continuing up the Tower Stabeler, forego the last 20m rappel. The more popular routes on Torre Stabeler begin here.
Scramble up easy terrain until the rock steepens. Start a bit right of the left-side of the tower and climb up and left to gain the arete at the top of the first pitch.
Lots of fixed protection, but this is not a sport climb.
