105m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The hardest route on the face. It takes a direct line just right of the large corner, then gains this for the final pitch. Bolted on the lower pitches, it is nonetheless advisable to take a rack.
Start on the saddle just right and below the prominent corner on the right side of Popena Basso.
1) IV-, 25m. Climb direct following spaced bolts up a slab before moving left to reach a wide ledge.
2) VI, 30m. Continue up the face above, taking a very direct line then trend left slightly to a ledge. Belay close to the corner.
3) VI+, 30m. Keep right of the corner until moves left lead into its centre. Belay a couple of metres above.
4) V+, 20m. Follow the corner then exit left to the treeline. © Rockfax

βeta: First pitch is given V+ in the local guide but I would say V would be fair. Definitely not IV- as given in rockfax
