Did the normal route twice in very different conditions. When wet the crux-chimney is a little stressy and not nice. In good conditions this is a very nice climb in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. It's easy to get on a sidetrack though, when halfway, keep a direct line and don't try to open new routes in the middle of the south face like we did.
The Dulfer route on the other side of the mountain is a suberb route. Really great climbing on relative solid rock (hey, your still in the dolomites). The route is well protected but not overpecked.
Also did gelbe-kante, Preuss and Cassin on Preusstrum.
