The rifugio is laying on a alpine pasture....

.... and the first boulders are close to the Rifugio.

Slabs and very good wallclimbing in the easier parts of the area...

... and powerful sitting starts in the sectors further in the back

New sitting starts also in the older sectors.

Wonderful coloured overhangs with problems in the 7th and 8th Fb-grade

Wow, sunny kissed even in fall and boulders like in the desert of Utah!
