Cascate di Corvara
1 Onda su Onda II, 3
The easiest icefall described here is nevertheless 90m long. Set at a moderate angle, it requires an abseil descent.


2 Spada di Damocle III, 4+
Two short steps lead to the base of the fall proper. After the first section belay beneath the final formation. Climb this or escape more easily rightwards. 70m plus the initial two steps. Descend by first traversing leftwards to a gully and then descending carefully down this to the final step. Abseil from the obvious fir tree on the left, before returning to the rucksacks at the base of the fall.


3 Solo per pochi III, 5
Longer and more demanding than those mentioned above, this fall offers some sustained, testing ice climbing. 100m long. Descend as for Spada di Damocle.


4 Brivido sottile III, 5+
This difficult fall tackles ice which is often very thin indeed. Possible start via a thin icicle on the right. 110m long. Descend as for Spada di Damocle.


5 Pissadù II, 3+
A steep start marks this short but fun fall. Roughly 80m long. Descend via abseil.
Close by are some other icefalls similar in grade.
