  • The tour is never crowded, a good alternative to Bianco-ridge.
  • Descend via the Eselsgrat, via equipped rappels and some easy downclimbing - 50m rope is enough for rappels
  • The conditions are best after some snow in early summer. Too much and the approach will be exhausting, not enough and the Rocky sections can get more tricky.
