Diedro Vinatzer climbing route is a very beautiful and scenic path developing through the high section of Mount Piz Ciavazes, along a well visible dihedron that dictates the climbing line. It is the most repeated via on this mountain, since all the other paths only go to ledge Cengia dei Camosci.

Only some stopping points are equipped with nails; the other -on spikes and hourglasses- need to be equipped during the climb. The itinerary is evocative, scenic and greatly satisfying and it needs to be faced in good physical conditions and alpine experience.
