Viki krema

First ascent: Tomaž Jakofčič, Luka Lindič summer 2011
By: Planetmountain.com
Area: Dolomites, Group: Tofane, Peak: Tofana di Rozes, Country: Italy, Region: Veneto

Viki krema climbs the immense South Face of the Tofana di Rozes.

The route starts in the triangular face to the right of the classic Eötvös Dimai. Above the big amphitheatre it climbs the steep yellow wall to the left of the route established in 1977 by the local Cortina-based Scoitattoli climbers Andrea Menardi and Carlo Michielli. Jakofčič and Lindic established the route over a four day period ground-up, then freed it on 28 and 29 September, forging their way through the last unknown 100m of steep ground.

Jakofčič commented: "Viki krema is not an alpine sport climb and despite the bolts it is a rather serious undertaking with long sections without bolts. Everything we used (23 bolts, four pitons and equiped belays) was left in-situ, apart from the trad rack. Expect 8-10 hours of climbing. One set of friends, nuts and tricams should be sufficient for a skilled climbers. The route generally follows very good rock and the exposure and views from the upper wall  are simply awesome."

GETTING THERE
