We focused on the old technical ascent Camillotto Pellesier, which was first aided in 1967 by brothers Minuzzo. Mauro „Bubu“ Bole did the route free in 2003 and classified it as 8b.
He climbed individual pitches with usage of original pitons, old belays repaired by bolts. Bole described it as „there were lots of pitons, every 70-80cm, but some only stuck in a few millimetres in the rock and for the most part faced downwards. Good for hanging but I doubt they could bear jumps however small..“ More from Bubu
Further the Stanislav´s articel describes initial problems with snow under the face and some fall after big block of rock fell down with the author. Then he writes about various other difficulties with the attempts and the succesfull RP try.
