The route was opened in 1985 by Claudio Cameroni, Paola Cameroni Moretti and Marco Ferrari, was later partially unbolted and featuresa trad climbing.. The crux is the 6th pitch, on a finger crack.
The first redpoint was made on 2006 by Swiss climbers Giovanni Quirici and Francesco Pellanda.
Ines had attempted the route last year in May with Liv Sansoz: after two weeks efforts the duo was forced to give up, in reason of the bad weather conditions, haevy rains followed by hot temperature.
This year, Liv Sansoz was climbing in US, so Ines Papert came back to Sonlerto with Charly Fritzer: they started to work on April 26th, and both redpointed the route.
“One of the best routes never climbed in my life!" was Ines comment.
