Pete on the easy ridge of 1 Sella Tower
The first of the five Sella towers. They are the summits located to the west end of the Sella group. First Sella Tower is the smallest, however most popular. The climbing is of an easier grade and the approach is short and straightforward. This leads to a highly polished climbing surface.
To approach the First Sella Tower, park at the top of Sella Pass. Most of the approaches take about 30 minutes.
