Cima Piccola North Face – Innerkofler IV+
The north face of Cima Piccola was first climbed in 1890 by Sesto mountain guide Sepp Innerkofler. The free climbing stretch through the chimney of the summit offers exposed climbing sections in an Alpine environment.
Sepp Innerkofler was the first to climb this route together with Veit Innerkofler and his client Ms. H. Helversen. According to legend, he is said to have climbed to just to below the summit without a safety rope when he first explored the route.
The route first runs across the south face of Cima Piccola until it reaches the north face saddle between Punta Frida and the tower at the top of the summit. From there, you climb the north face through a system of cracks and chimneys until you reach the narrow peak. The descent is on the west side via the abseil piste. This classic climbing tour promises a complex Alpine adventure.
