Details of the Via Cassin climbing route on Cima Piccola di Lavaredo
L1 45 m., IV+, V, IV, 2 pitons
Climb the yellow corner to a first terrace, through a crack, then you reach a second detrital terrace with two belay pitons at its base.
L2 30 m., IV, V+, VI- or V and A0, 7 pitons
From the belay, cross to the right and climb to another corner to another belay located on a smaller terrace.
L3 25 m., V+, VII- or V+ and A0, VI, V, 4 pitons, 1 jammed friend
Climb to the first piton just above the belay, then veer to the left towards a piton with a white rope, useful for resetting. Ignore the pitons on the vertical line, it is a more difficult variant, and move further to the right instead; enter a chimney and climb a few meters to a small terrace that will lead you to a belay across and to the right.
L4 20 m., VI+ or V+ and A0, VI, 7 pitons
Follow the vertical line, heading for the overhang just above. After passing it, continue through cracks, reaching a large detached flake where we stop.
L5 30 m., V+, VI-, V, 5 pitons
From this runout belay, climb a few meters to a piton with an old sling; then, taking advantage of a great crack for your hands, start the long cross to the left taking you to the base of an obvious pillar (ignore the vertical pitons leading to another route). Then, for a few meters climb up the corner formed by the pillar belaying on a small ledge.
L6 15 m., V, V+, 2 pitons
In a wide split, climb up inside the corner up to the top of the pillar where we belay.
L7 30 m., IV, 1 mote at V, 1 piton
Cross to the left, towards Punta Frida, bypassing the buttress leading to the grey rock, on to simpler and well-structured rocks to a wide ledge where we belay on two pitons.
L8 35 m., IV, 1 move at V+
Without an obligatory route, climb from the belay on the oblique to the left along cracks and flakes to a comfortable ledge where we set up a belay.
L9 and L10 60 m., IV, IV+
Follow the ledge to the left to an obvious chimney. Climb it up in a split exiting on its left face. Then on simple rocks up to the top, where you belay on a cemented piton with a big loop ring.
