In 1985 there has been opened a new route remembering Rudi Runggaldier from Ortisei. He was the son of Franz Runggaldier, who has been the leader of the Val Gardena Mountain Guides for many years.

The family wanted to dedicate a route to Franz Runggaldier, too, they asked Adam and me to climb one.

Descent: over grass slopes towards Alpe Seceda
