Area: Valsugana, Group: Val Gadena, Peak: Monte Spitz, Height: 1093m, Country: Italy, Region: Veneto
Pleasant climb that searches for the line of least resistance up the most repulsive section of the west pillar of Monte Spitz.
ACCESS 1: from Valsuguna drive into Val Gadena and park at the start of the valley, just before the closed road sign. Walk up the forest road for a few hundred meters, then take the path CAI #785 path on the right and follow this to the base of the pillar. At this point, turn left following a track that coasts the face to reach the base of the route (1.00 hour).
ACCESS 2: reach the village Stoner and from here continue along the road that finishes at the top of Mont Spitz. Park your car at the lay-by at the summit and walk down the CAI path that leads down into Valsugana until you reach the base of the West Pillar. Now skirt the face until you reach the base of the route (0.30 hour)
From Valsuguna drive into Val Gadena and park at the start of the valley, just before the closed road sign.
P1: 20m, 6b
Option 1: From the last belay traverse left for a few meters, scramble diagonally right up the grassy ramp that leads to the ridge and from here continue up to the top of the West Pillar (grade II scramble). At this point continue rightwards along CAI path #800 to the fork with the CAI path #785. At this point, if you parked the car at the entrance to Val Gadena, follow the #785 downhill (1.00 hour), otherwise follow #800 to the top of Monte Spitz (0.30 minutes).
Option 2: Abseil down the route
10 quickdraws and 2 x 60m half ropes
