It may occasionally happen to have a chat with someone and feel that we do not want to miss a single word of what they are saying, because it is so full of meaning. And so it was with Armando Aste, a leader of the Rovereto climbing school and a "master" in the deepest sense of the word, a master of life even before being a master of climbing. When we visited him at his home in an afternoon of lashing rain, we discovered a small museum gathering the memories of a thousand mountain adventures, and listened enthralled for a couple of hours to the stories and wisdom of a man who already had 85 springs behind him.
About a month later, as we went with our friends to retrace Via Rovereto at Campanil Basso, Armando's words were still echoing in our ears, and it really felt like we were experiencing again the openers' emotions when they attacked the yellowish cliffs on the middle band of the rock 50 years ago.
As for the route, the author's name is in itself a guarantee, and here too we came across a gem of logic and daring, on a flawless rock!

Access: from Madonna di Campiglio take the road to Vallesinella, then walk to Rifugio Alberto e Maria ai Brentei. From there, continue on the path that climbs to Bocca di Brenta until just below the broad shoulder vertical. The route starts a few metres to the right of the lowest point on the face. 2.15h from Vallesinella or 40min from Rifugio Brentei.

Return: along the normal Campanil Basso route (provincial road, two 50m abseils, ledge, another two 50m abseils). Then return via the Bocchette path or along the gully, if there is no ice.
