Cima Della Madonna, from near San Martino di Castr...

Description 

The Pala Group is one of the most scenic and enchanting areas of the Dolomites, and the climbs here generally require more time due to longer approaches. Weather is often an issue here, and clouds frequently abound. The major rock climbing summits are the Cima Canali, Cima Della Madonna, and Pala di San Martino; the Cimone della Pala is a beautiful summit viewed driving over the Rolle Pass to the valley base of San Martino di Castrozza.

Getting There 

Access to San Martino di Castrozza is best from either Trento or Bolzano by driving over Passo Rolle, (German: Rolle Pass).

The climb attacks the arete directly and soon passes over the famous "organ pipe holds." The climbing is exceptional and continuously steep. After reaching the top of the initial buttress, continue up the crest of the arete to a second buttress top; a long stretch across a gap to the final headwall is required. The climbing is astounding, on rock resembling a big petrified spongeDescend via the Winkler chimney between the Cima della Madonna and Sass Maor by a marked 2nd and 3rd class s...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
