40 anni per il Falier

First ascent: Igor Koller, Dino Kuran, 1993. First free ascent: Roland Mittersteiner, Oliver Renzler 08/2010
By: Planetmountain
Area: Dolomites, Group: Marmolada, Peak: Marmolada, Height: 3247m, Country: Italy

40 anni rifugio Falier takes a beautiful line which cuts straight through the impressive pillar, visible from the hut below. First ascended over three days by Slovak climbers Igor Koller and Dino Kuran, it was freed by Roland Mittersteiner and Oliver Renzler in summer 2010. The duo replaced all the original 8mm bolts and added a new bolt on the second crux pitch immediatly above the belay for safety reasons. The first four pitches mustn't be underestimated (!) and act as a "warm-up" to the system of cracks which, with interesting and varied climbing, lead to the top of the pillar.

GETTING THERE

Take the motorway A22 Modena-Brennero and exit, after Bolzano, at Ora. Drive up the Val di Fiemme to Predazzo, then up the Val di Fassa to Canazei. Continue on up to Passo Fedaia and then descend to Malga Ciapela.

ACCESS

From the car park at Malga Ciapela take path no. 610 to Rifugio Onorato Falier (2080m), nestled beneath the South Face of the Marmolada (1.15 hrs from Malga Ciapela). From Rif. Falier follow path no. 610, to the narrow hairpin bends where it points up to Passo d'Ombretta (west); traverse right (east) across alpine meadows upwards to a ramp that leads up the pedestal to the base of the routes.
