Rio Pelous -

By: Alpine Ice Tour
Area: Dolomites, Group: Valle di Fassa, Country: Italy, Region: Trentino Alto Adige

The icefall Rio Pelous, also known as Cascata di Campitello, is a beautiful drip immersed in a beautiful, surreal environment a mere 10 minutes from the car park at Col Rodella (Campitello di Fassa). The first vertical section is followed by a narrow gully which, in turn leads to a snow gully from where the third and final vertical pitch begins.


From the A22 motorway Modena-Brennero exit at Egna-Ora. Follow signs for Val di Fiemme, then Val di Fassa. After Moena continue towards Canazei, and reach the the “Col Rodella” cable car in Campitello di Fassa.


Park the car park at the “Col Rodella” cable car walk up through the forest directly to the icefall. Walk-in: 10/15 minutes.


Abseil down the route using the bolt belays.


Full ice climbing rack.

salita il 29/01/2011 con Alessandro e Luca, cascata di rara bellezza, da non sottovalutare. Ambiente grandioso.Ultimo tiro un pò bagnato. Disturbati da un elicottero grigio che è pure passato sotto i cavi della funivia del col rodella!!!!
