The town of Cortina d'Ampezzo is dominated on it's north side by the Pomagagnon Group. Access to this fine series of summits is easy from this superb valley base, which is well endowed with lodging and many fine eating establishments.
The Group runs on a West to East direction, beginning on the west edge with Punta Fiames, Punta della Croce, and Campinile Dimai; a central portion contains the summits of Croda Longes, Croda Pomagagnon, Testa del Bartoldo, and Costa del Bartoldo; after another Forcella (gap), the summits resume with Punta Cestelis and Punta Erbing.
Access from Cortina d'Ampezzo. Just outside of Cortina to the North on SS51.You park across the street at Hotel Fiames.

Great climbing on solid rock. Park at the hospital and walk up past the helicopter landing pad. Follow the path to a marked path to the right and up to the rock.
