Thriller

First ascent: M. Dibona & M. Da Pozzo, 1985
By: Planetmountain
Area: Dolomites, Group: Spalti di Col Becchei, Peak: Col Becchei, Country: Italy

Ascent: one of the most interesting routes, which required great intuition to avoid the roofs. The climbing is technical and sustained on excellent rock. The route crosses Los Angeles and Balbic at about half height.

GETTING THERE

From Cortina drive towards Dobbiaco along the SS51. After the small village Fiames turn left off the main road (signposted Val di Fanes - Trevenanzes). Park the car at the entrance to the park and continue on foot. Follow signs for Fanes, over several bridges and along the forest road. After a few bends the path straightens out and continues along the valley floor, past the Taé walls on the right, and then on to the Spalti di Col Becchei. The path forks at this point; go right over a small bridge onto the other side of the valley floor towards the Spalti. A cairn indicates a small path leading off rightwards through the wood steeply up to the rock face. To reach Illusione Ottica and Thriller scramble up the scree, traverse leftwards along an exposed section beneath a band of rock, and then return rightwards. The other routes are reached more easily by walking directly up to the base of the crag. Taé’s routes are reached by crossing the bridge and briefly following the road, to then ascend the gully on the right. Reach the pine trees and then scramble up the ramp rightwards to the base of the wall.

ACCESS

Start on the extreme right-hand side of the ledge described in the introduction, immediately after the corner that marks the start of Teufelstanz (bolt), near a small larch tree.

DESCENT

From the top walk leftwards to a fir tree where the abseil starts. All abseil belays are equipped with pegs and bolts (4 x 50m).

GEAR

Although bolt and peg protected, a set of wires and friends may be found useful, especially on the final pitch.

Bella via, attrezzato abbastanza bene. La partenza dalla cengia sull 'ultimo tiro non e' per niente facile.

itinerario splendido e abbastanza logico, nei tratti piu facili non del tutto evidente e per niente da sottovalutare.
