Very beautiful and linear itinerary that takes place to the right of the “Topo” route on a very articulated and compact gray rock wall. In recent years it has been repeated many times and this has helped to equip the route almost completely. The ascension for the beautiful climbing and the excellent exposure it presents is very advisable. Just be careful not to confuse the itinerary with the more modern climbs which, especially in the second half, are very close.
From the Duràn Pass, follow the path that leads to the Carestiato Refuge until you enter the carriage road. A few meters further on, towards the north, a small valley opens up with a trace of a path (often the first section is quite marshy). This leads to the Croda Spiza and crosses it reaching a steep gravel gully (pass. 2 °) which leads to the base of the rocks (1.10 h).
Pass the socle in common with via “Topo”, cross the ledge on the right up to a small gray dihedral.
From the top of the tower you pass a sloping fireplace reaching the large scree placed behind the top. You go down for this (track) until it is possible to cross and go up to the south reaching a saddle between the Jolanda Tower and a secondary forepart. From here, lowering through the obvious channel under the wall (pass. 2 ° -), you reach the base of the rocks (1 h).
