Descent correction – Page 388, Torre Grande – Cima Nord, East Face

The yellow box descent on page 388 of the Dolomites book is missing some information. The correct description is on page 386 and includes the extra short abseil required.

Descent – For climbs finishing on the summit, head to the west side where you will find an abseil point on a large boulder. Make a short abseil of 20m into the gully between the four towers, then make your way down left (looking down) to reach a large cemented abseil ring. Make a long 50m abseil into the gully between Torre Grande Sud and Torre Grande Nord. Continue down the scree gully on easy ground until you reach a final abseil station where the ground gets steeper. Make a final 25m abseil back down to the ground and the start of Fessura Dimai.
