TORRE BRUNICO AND MUR DE PISCIADù


The northwest face of Mur de Pisciadù and its adjoining tower, Torre Brunico, have some of the best multi-pitch sport routes in the area. Although well equipped the bolts are quite spaced, and a small trad rack is advised for the routes here. The pocketed nature of the rock means a set of tri-cams are particularly useful. The Mur de Pisciadù suffers from seepage, especially if there's still snow on the summit plateau above. The face generally only comes into condition properly after mid July. Torre Brunico suffers no such seepage problems and Oltre la porta and Ottovolante can usually be found in good condition. For Torre Brunico take the 29a signed towards the 'Pisciadù via ferrata'. Follow the path for 8 minutes until you come to a junction with path 29 joining from above. Take path 29 on the right and go uphill for 50m until the path swings sharply right. Turn off the path here and ascend scree to the base of Torre Brunico. For the Mur de Pisciadù carry straight on, staying on the 666a which leads steeply uphill. After 10 minutes you reach a second junction with path 29. Continue straight ahead, still on the 666 for another 100m, before turning off and making your way across scree to the base of the face. For Oro e carbone and Anton aus Tirol contour eastwards under the face for a further 5 minutes.
