Ascent Trip Report

I started from car park, where the trail to Bivacco Giuseppe Bianchi begins, at elevation of 1050m. Good marked trail leads to Bivacco and from there, after 200-300m south-east you have to turn left up to the grassy slope, which turns into rocky section after few meters, all well marked.
There is red arrow on the stone, with small cairn, which I missed, but thanks to my GPS I found out in 10-15 minutes that I went different route adn turn back from old route which leads to Zuc dal Bor from south.
I went by north-west ridge and come up to final summit tower where is the only climbing section of the road. Ridge is spectacular, especially on east side, but nothing difficult, just walk with few easy scrambling, of course if dry conditions. Indeed, there is one short downclimb on the ridge, but I would say that it is only 3-4m short scrambling of UIAA II with good holds.
Final climb has plenty of bolts where you can secure your partner or go solo if you feel ok with UIAA IV-V lead climbing. There are only few moves of III+/-IV grade, and after 6-8m you come to a ledge, which is wide enough. And from there, it is only short grade II, and all of a sudden you are on the top of Zuc dal Bor. For abseiling I had 60m rope, which suffice for one rappel, but 30m rope would be still enough.
