Cattedrale di centro - Marmolada

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

La Cattedrale is located on the righthand side of the canyon and its imposing nature means that "The Cathedral" simply cannot be mistaken. The icefall is split into three main lines, and this central route offers vertical, not too sustained climbing and a splendid second pitch.

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.


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.


Reach Serrai, then continue on foot to reach the first icefalls in just a couple of minutes. The majestic Cattedrale is located on the right with three obvious lines of ascent.


Two abseils, the first off a tree, the second off a bolt-belay.


Normal ice climbing gear.
