If the waterfall is climbed after a snowfall, some belay stations could be covered (however, the option exists of a descent along the steep wood to the side).

Route:Ascend the first prominence up to the belay station under the bridge (70-80° 30 m SS).Passing under the bridge, the easily visible vertical stretch is reached from the road (20 metres, elementary).Climb the outflow, belaying on the right (30 m 80-85° SS).Continue along a number of ridges under a small recessed ramp (30 m passages at 70°). Tackle the ramp and go beyond a little snow-covered clearing under the final ridge (30 m 70-80°).Climb the column with a vertical stretch, belaying on the left (30 m, 70-90° SS).
Descent:4 double ropes, 30 metres long.
A little before the Diagonal car park (1 km) coming from Sappada, near a bridge, the waterfall can be seen on the left.Park the car in the little space nearby, cross the trunk road and descend along a little road to the base of the slope, a little above the river where the waterfall begins (10 minutes).
