Giovanni Paolo II

First ascent: Bepi de Francesch & Fiorenzo Vanzetta, 1978
By: Alberto De Giuli, Mountain Guide
Area: Dolomites, Group: Sella, Peak: Piz Ciavazes, Country: Italy

Great route up good rock, established by  B. De Franceschi and F. Vanzetta in 1978 (pegs and pressure bolts). It was rebolted recently in a combined effort first by R. Bernard and G. Bonanno, then by Luigi Trippa & Co. (middle pitches) and finished off by Bernard with E. and P. Bernard and C. Peveri.


From Passo Sella continue for a few kilometers to reach a long straight section and parking spaces on the right, immediately beneath the south face. From Canazei continue part the bar/restaurant Monti Pallidi to the hairpin bend and parking spaces immediately afterwards on the left.


For the car park walk towards Spigolo Abram for 10 minutes. This leads to a section with single pitches. The route starts up the obvious ramp/corner system close to the start of a short via ferrata.


Abseil (70m rope sufficient abseiling from P6) or walk down via the ledge Cengia dei Camosci.


13 quickdraws, one 70m rope

Via buona per giornate incerte. Una lunghezza molto bella, il traverso del quinto tiro (per me assomiglia più ad un 6b che a 6c). Roccia mediocre sul sesto tiro. Carina il resto anche se discontinua. Spittatura ravvicinata. Consiglio di seguire la lunghezza di Non c'è due senza te al sesto tiro.
