Cascata delle Attraversate - Marmolada

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

This icefall is often used by beginners when learning how to ice climb. The route starts on a slab then climbs the drip to the left. After this the route traverses right, as the name suggests, to belay on rock. A final pitch winds its way through the gully and climbs over a final steeper section to the belay on rock once again.

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.

GETTING THERE

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.

ACCESS

Reach Serrai, then continue on foot to reach the first icefalls in just a couple of minutes. Cascata delle Attraversate is located on the right, opposite the majestic Cattedrale.

DESCENT

Abseil (50m ropes)

GEAR

Normal ice climbing gear.
