Monte Pore

By: Mario Dibona, Mountain Guide
Area: Dolomites, Group: Croda da Lago - Nuvolau, Peak: Monte Pore, Height: 2405 m, Country: Italy

Monte Pore, with its large iron summit cross, stands out like an immense white, beckoning pyramid above Passo Giau. The best way to answer its call is to put on snowshoes and walk to the summit – although demanding, it’s definitely highly satisfying.

GETTING THERE

From Cortina drive to Passo Giau along the SS 638.

ACCESS

Continue down from Passo Giau towards Selva di Cadore ? Colle S. Lucia and park at the chairlift and refuge at Fedare (2000m).

ROUTE

From Rif. Fedare walk west to a beautiful small white church. Continue up easy slopes past wooden huts used to store hay in summer. Head left towards the crest and then follow this to the summit. High winds may render this section icy and difficult – keep well away from the crest line proper as this may be corniced. Once on the summit enjoy the fantastic 360° panorama – unique and incomparable in beauty.

DESCENT

Descend along the line of ascent.

GEAR

Normal equipment for winter walking, snowshoes and poles, lightweight crampons.

DIFFICULTY

Snowpack must be well bonded and stable.
