Grotta di Landro
This crag is a new gem in the Landro valley. The first routes were established in the nineties by Massimo da Pozzo and friends and in recent years Hannes Pfeifhofer, a mountain guide from the Tre Cime di Sesto group and famous new router, added numerous new lines to both the cave and the slabs on either side. As you can see from the photos, the climbing varies considerably: pocketed slabs on either sides, and steep overhanging routes through the cave. With routes from 4c - 8c, Grotte Landro really offers something for everyone!
From Cortina head towards Dobbiaco, park circa 500 meters before Lake Landro in the layby on the right (used to reach the old Landro crag). From the car park cross the bike trail and the dry river bed, continue through the woods (markers on trees and cairns) to reach a wide path. From here you have two possibilities:
- turn left, continue for about 400m to reach a small meadow, from here continue right (south) up a path to reach the steep slope beneath the crag
- continue straight on (along a path that is barely visible) to reach the fall line below the crag.
From here continue along the path, past the large boulder, to reach the base of the crag. 20 minute approach.
