The alpine object is the southern side of the peak, which represents a wide amphitheatre, about 5 km wide and 500 to 1,000 meters high. There are two different parts on the southern rock: a more massive and more compact one faced on the southwest and another rock, facing the southeast.

The length of the rock ranges from 250 to 700 meters. According to its composition, it is limestone with a fragility which varies in different parts. The rock has about two dozen alpine directions, with very weak protection. The main problems of this huge rock are still waiting to be solved.
