Cascata del sole

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Dolomites, Group: Sottoguda, Peak: Marmolada, Height: 1300m, Country: Italy, Region: Veneto

The Cascata del sole is a great line which, given the right conditons, can be climbed in the sun. Starting from a wide base, the route narrows as it gains height into a small gully towards the end.

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. Cascata del Sole is the first icefall on the right.

DESCENT

Abseil.

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear.
