Established by Massimo Da Pozzo and Pier Francesco Smaltini in September 2012, La beffa (the joke) gets it's name from the fact that the drill batteries dies two bolts short of the summit, forcing Mox to return to finish off his route. The most demanding pitches climb yellow, good quality rock. All belays are equipped with two bolts and an abseil ring. The grades are indicative and need confirming.
From Cortina d’Ampezzo head towards Passo Falzarego to Pocol, shortly after this bear left up the #638 towards Passo Giau. From the Pocol fork continue for 4 km to layby, park here and continue on foot leftwards (south) along the popular path which leads to Rifugio Palmieri at Croda da Lago.
Follow path #437 towards Rifugio Palmieri. At the Cason de Formin fork (1848m) bear right along path #435 towards Forcella Formin. Where the path steepens, at a rightwards hairpin bend, exit left along the obvious horizontal track. Ascend this towards Cason de Formin and then continue along its base leftwards up scree. The route starts a circa 10m to the left of “via Cecilia”, at the base of a yellow-black corner. Bolt clearly visible above.
Walk east along the ledge and descend left towards the large scree gully which leads quickly back to the base of the route (circa30 minutes).
