Marmolada: exploring the first refuge in the Dolomites with Bruno Pederiva

di

The oldest refuge in the Dolomites, located on the east face of Punta Penia on Marmolada, featuring mountain guide Bruno Pederiva.


4 meters high and 5 meters wide, the oldest refuge in the Dolomites was built in 1875 on the flanks of Marmolada, more precisely on the east face of Punta Penia at circa 3100 meters above sea level thanks to the Agordo section of the Italian Mountaineering Club. 145 years ago the entrance was level with the glacier, now though as a result of global warming it is located a staggering 80 meters above the retreating ice. In this video Bruno Pederiva, Val di Fassa mountain guide and great expert of the Queen of the Dolomites, explores this particular refuge and demonstrates its by no means easy access high above the mountain’s normal route.
