This was an extremely enjoyable route. The grading listed on this page is a little off, since this route and the Comici share the same final 3 leads, one of which is UIAA IV+. Pitch 5 of via della Guide is also rated as IV+ by Mauro Bernardi. On the YDS scale, pitch 5 is right at the division of 5.6/5.7 for about 3-4 moves. This was the crux of the climb, a short finger traverse with poor footholds.
The descent and getting back to the trail is rather arduous, and involves several short sections of lower 5th class scrambling.
My partner on the climb was guidebook author, Mauro Bernardi.
