First alpine route in the Dolomites of the season

After a very snowy winter, spring and early summer together with Charlie we managed to climb the first alpine route of the season. As objective we chose a relatively new route at Pala della Ghiaccia in Catinaccio called Via Fontana dell’Oblìo. A modern but traditionally protected (no bolts) route through a 300 meters tall, solid, grey wall put up by Stefano Michelazzi, Ivo Rabanser e Stefan Comploi. The climbing is varied (pockets, cracks, slabs and a little roof) and adventurous, weaving its way through the steep compact wall always following the line of least resistance.
