Description 

The Sella group is a sector within the Dolomites that consists of a large plateau with many climbs scattered all around the palateau, including the popular routes at Sella pass (Sella towers, Piz Ciavazes), the enormous Sass Pordoi accessed from just above Canazei and from Pordoi pass, the Piz Boe routes accessed from Pordoe pass, the Piz da Lec accessable from the lifts in Corvara and the Tridentina area with its very popular Via Ferrata just below Gardena pass. There are enough routes in the Sella area to fill an entire season of climbing

Getting There 

Drive East from Bolzano or West from Cortina to Canazei (a nice area to base camp). From town you will be looking at Piz Ciavazes and up towards Sella pass. This is the Sella group. It is completely surrounded by a circular road that crosses multiple passes. Small villages exist all around the plateau where you can get food, beer, a room or find camping.

INTRODUCTIONThe Friendship Route, or Schubert, is a perfect route for those who are comfortable on Dolomites grade 6. For Americans, imagine a thousand foot Shelf Road cliff with no bolts. The traditional protection is not always the kind of gear you'd want to huck onto. We read that all the belays had solid bolts, but this did not seem to be so. DESCENTInstead of a rappel route, there is a long walk off with some fun via-ferrata sections. We did not carry hiking shoes up and t...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
