Candela delle Meraviglie

First ascent: A.Mangano, F.Cappellari e L.Zilio 1995
By: Mario Sertori
Area: Central Alps, Group: Livigno Alps, Height: 2250m, Country: Italy, Region: Lombardy

A relatively demanding, nice climb set in a beautiful and isolated part of the Alps. Danger of avalanches: beware of snow conditions.

GETTING THERE

From Milan drive to Lecco and then Colico along the SS 36, then continue along the SS 38 to Bormio. From here take the SS 301 towards Livigno and the Foscagno Pass 2291 m.The Forcola pass which connects Valle di Livigno with Valle di Poschiavo is open from May to November only.

ACCESS

Continue past Red Bull to reach this little jewel, located above the stream wedged in-between the overhanging rocks. (1.30/2 hours)

ROUTE

The beautiful free-standing drip is roughly 18/20m high and 90°. Equipped belay on the hydrographical right. Finish up a second, much less interesting pitch.

DESCENT

Equipped belays. Abseil.
