Sass di Stria - Dolomites
The Sass di Stria, a minor peak within the Fanis group, is famous for its popular Spigolo Sud, an easy arête clearly visible from the nearby Passo Falzarego.

The base of its east face is weathered and slabby and hence ideal for beginners. Some routes were equipped long ago for the military "Alpini", but in 1996 a group of aspiring Mountain Guides bolted the entire wall, thereby creating one of the Dolomites', and Italy's, easiest crags

Getting there
Passo Falzarego is reached easily from Cortina, Livinallongo or Caprile. Continue towards Passo Valparola to a car park on the left near a large boulder. A path leads downhill to the wall, clearly visible from the road.

Best time of year
Summer.
The wall, situated at 2000m, faces east and receives the morning sun.

Rock and gear
The rock is slabby and weathered and becomes steeper and more compact next to "sasso scuola".

All routes have either 10mm bolts or resin bolts and an abseil chain. Two routes have a second pitch. Take a set of quickdraws and a 50m rope.

About 40m to the left of the crag there are 4 routes (III-IV) that are not bolted but which have a belay.
