The crag opposite the refuge. It is shorter than most of the other sectors at Sella, but the main section is steep, giving some powerful routes. The right-hand side is a very popular easy area with some nice slab climbs, inevitably it has become polished.

Climb up and then left with difficulty where a nasty move using a chipped one finger pocket reaches the buckets.

Quisiera ser un octavo
From the left side of a niche, climb a thin crack and groove. Spaced bolts can be supplemented with wires. High in the grade.

From the right-hand side of the niche, climb direct on flaky rock.

The smooth slab leads to easier sustained climbing above. Passing the second bolt is thin but is avoidable on the left at 6a.
