Muro Giallo Route, climbing to the summit of the Cima Piccola di Lavaredo

S.Glowacz, K.Albert, 1996

This climbing route to the summit of the Small Lavaredo is one of the most famed sport routes in the Tre Cime di Lavaredo Group. It conquers the left face of the famous Spigolo Giallo (Yellow Spur), a technical but physical climb, continually using fingers on slightly overhanging faces, with crimps and holes, at a sustained level of difficulty yet on great rock surface.

The route is completely protected by chain fixes at the belays.

Information on the Yellow Face Route, climbing to the Summit of the Cima Piccola di Lavaredo

The total length of the Muro Giallo Route to the summit of the Small Lavaredo is 320 meters, requiring 6 to 8 hours for one repetition.

To reach the summit you will need 15 quickdraws, two 9 mm ropes and good endurance to conquer the 11 lengths.

The level of difficulty for the climb is 7a+ maximum with a mandatory 6c+/S1/II level.

The first six rope lengths are the most challenging, with continuous difficulties at 7a and 7a+ level and decreasing between 6c and 6b in the remaining lengths.

It is advisable to tackle the descent on the normal route with four 40 meters abseils or better to avoid problems retrieving them, with eight 20 m small abseils, always on inox resin runners. Total time is one hour.

The approach is quite short, just twenty minutes from the Lavaredo Lodge.
