Excalibur

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Dolomites, Group: Sottoguda, Peak: Marmolada, Height: 1350m, Country: Italy, Region: Veneto

Excalibur is undoubtedly the most beautiful icefall in the valley. Three steps connected together create an exemplary line, aesthetically perfect. The first drip which enters the water is highly characteristic... place protection immediately to avoid the cold bath!

Sottoguda represents an obligatory ice climbing venue in North-East Italy for many ice climbers. Its relative vicinity to larger cities, ease of access, the in-situ protection and beauty of the routes render the canyon one of the most popular areas in this part of northern Italy.

GETTING THERE

Serrai di Sottoguda is reached from Belluno or from Feltre by driving up Val Cordevole past Agordo, Alleghe and Caprile. From here continue upwards towards the Marmolada and Fedaia Pass. Immediately after Bosco Verde turn off right for Serrai di Sottoguda.

ACCESS

Reach Serrai, then continue on foot to reach the first icefalls in just a couple of minutes.

DESCENT

Three abseils, bolt belays.

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear.
