Via dei Torinesi (5c) and Prenota la Polenta (5b)

You can link the classic route "Via dei Torinesi" with the more recent route "Prenota la Polenta", first climbed and bolted by Giulio Scarca.
"Via dei Torinesi" begins about 2 meters to the left of "Normale" in Central Sector (signs at the base): it is a sustained and superb 3-pitch route on excellent rock leading at the top of the buttress. From here, moving left and down in a gully, you can reach the sector "Bianciotto" and the 2nd pitch of "Prenota la polenta".
Difficulty: TD- / 5C.

Length of the route:: 200 m (90+110)

Gear: some medium sized cams - 7-8 draws - 2 50m ropes
