This superb cave is situated high on the hillside to the left of the main Grande Grotta crags. The long approach walk puts off many but the routes in the cave are amongst the best around of their style and anyone who makes the effort to get here will be rewarded as long as you actually get up something.

A great route (almost) worth the walk up to just to do this if it is your grade.

Take the thin tufa out of the right-hand side of the cave which leads to big stretches between buckets and a technical wall.

A cracker. Start on a ledge up and left and follow tufas onto the pocketed headwall. Tough for the grade.

A very steep start up the blobs then thin moves lead right to a tufa system. Finish up right at the Neolithic Line lower-off.
