Sass da Putia East Face

By: Enrico Baccanti and Francesco Tremolada, Alta Badia Guides
Area: Dolomites, Group: Puez-Odle, Height: 2875m, Country: Italy, Region: Trentino Alto Adige

A steep skiing itinerary which gives you the possibility to ski down from the summit of Sass da Putia down the sunny side which looks over Val Badia. The first descent was made by Heini Holzer during the seventies.

ACCESS

Longiarù in Val Badia. Longiarù is reached from San Martino in Badia, which can be easily reached by turning onto the road (244) which joins Brunico to the villages in Alta Badia. Once you cross the town of Longiarù follow the road which climbs up the valley with the same name till you reach the hamlet of Seres. Park your car near the beginning of the forestry road (marked n°4).

ROUTE

Follow the road heading into the valley, till you reach a junction which leads to Rifugio Genova (sign posts). From here continue to the right along the road, crossing the torrent and following sign posts for Utia Vaciara till you reach the slopes at the base of the wall. Climb up this using ice axe and crampons, along the evident central couloir and traversing to the right (exposed, not always covered in snow) to reach the final part where you need to pick the best itinerary for the successive descent.

DESCENT

From the summit’s cross ski down your uphill tracks, being careful down the first steep section which has rocks sticking out and is exposed to a rock step which hangs over the couloir.

GEAR

Ice axe and crampons

NOTES

This itinerary requires abundant snow, but it has to be safe, be careful in choosing the right moment to ski down. Other possibilities: If the conditions are not ideal you can ski down the normal route (easy climbing with equipped sections) to reach itinerary Piccolo Putia.
