Jeo, new rock climb in the Sella Dolomites

On the East Face of Col de Stagn (Sella group, Dolomites) Andrea Oberbacher and Francesco Tremolada have made the first ascent of 'Jeo' (7a max, 6b+ obligatory, 185m).

Jeo is the latest modern sport climb to be established up the East Face of Col de Stagn, after the hugely popular Eva Dorme (6b+ max) and its easier neighbour Ludomania (6a max). Of the three routes currently on this face, Jeo is certainly the most difficult due to the second pitch which steep and requires stamina. The climbing is never straight forward and along the easier sections the gear is slightly more run-out. Take some slings and small camming devices. In some sections the rock will need some further cleaning.

All these routes are interesting options for a short day out climbing, in the warmth of the morning sun or in the afternoon shade during hot summer days.

Access is easy and fast via the lifts from Corvara and at the top of the route Rifugio Kostner welcomes close by: these are all factors which render this small cliff even more interesting.
