Sonnentanz - Langental

First ascent: Daniel Ladurner, Hannes Lemayer 07/12/2018
By: Daniel Ladurner
Area: Dolomites, Group: Val Gardena-Vallunga, Peak: Langental, Country: Italy

Mixed route that climbs through the big cave to the left of lluminati. Three pitches of water ice are followed by a mixed pitch which, protected by 6 bolts, breaches the grotto. A further two ice pitches lead to the top.


Coming from the south, exit the A22 motorway after Bolzano at Val Gardena. Drive up the beautiful valley, passing Ortisei, Santa Cristina and Selva di Val Gardena. At a junction, follow signs for Vallunga and after a few kilometers the road ends near the start of the cross country piste; follow this into the valley.


From the car park at 1650m, ascend through the valley for about 40 minutes until the drip appears on the hydrographic right (hydrographic right of Mystera - Illuminati). Scramble up the gully to reach the base of the route. Calculate 2 h.
