Geo

First ascent: K. Vinatzer & A. Holzknecht, 1987
By: Planetmountain
Area: Dolomites, Group: Sella, Peak: Torre delle Mésules Est, Height: 2457m, Country: Italy

This route is technical and demanding; the third pitch, which follows a difficult yellow slab and roof, is outstanding. The climbing is sustained 5/6 with a 7 crux (the roof on the third pitch). Strict ethics resulted in about 5/6 pegs on the entire route, of which 4 are used for the belays.

GETTING THERE

The Sella group is surrounded by four passes: Pordoi, Campolongo, Gardena and Sella. Torre delle Meisules Est lies in the north between the Sella and Gardena mountain passes. Park the car on the long straight section beneath the Torre (clearly visible from the road).

ACCESS

Approach the tower by following a trail for 20 minutes to its base and the wedged block in the gully from where the route starts.

DESCENT

From the summit walk leftwards (east) towards the Murfried towers and then follow a broken path down to the base.

GEAR

A set of wires, medium sized friends & tricams, plenty of kevlar threads

Fantastic climb with sensational moves. Keep your nerves when approaching the roof ...

Arrampicata impegnativa su ottima roccia. Più difficile di Brunsin. Con un set di friends e tricam è tutta ben proteggibile. Impegnativa l'uscita del tetto.

bella e ben proteggibile,eccetto la zona gialla sotto il tetto che comunque si svolge su roccia ottima
