"Fünffingerspitze - Spigolo Cuecn"

At the „Fünffingerspitze“ in the Sassolungo Group; it’s an extreme tour at a very steep edge of the Punta Leone where the rock is often very brittle.

First ascent: August 1997 with Markus Kostner
Difference in height of the pillar: 250 m
Rope pitches: 7
Grade of difficulty: upper 7 th

Since ever edges are very fascinating for climbers. You can climb them direct o round them on the right or on the left side. The edge of this pillar can be seen from Passo Sella. At the end of the second rope pitch we found an old piton proving that someone else tried to climb this wall before.

The Ladin name “Spigolo Cuecen” means “Red Edge”.

Descent: over the ridge towards south in the gap between Grohmann and Fünffinger (to abseil). Otherwise you can climb over the ridge to the main summit and abseil the Normal Route.
