Traumpfeiler, the pillar of dreams. The name couldn’t be more appropriate for this famous climb that, given its beauty, also lent its name to the magnificent limestone missile located beneath the Sella Pass in the Italian Dolomites. Bolted from above in 1984 by Gardena alpinists Stefan Stuflesser and Carlo Großrubatscher on the Cansla sector of Meisules dla Biesces, this outing is recognised as being one of the first multi-pitch sports climbs in the Dolomites.
Take the A22 motorway and exit at Bolzano Nord. Follow signs to Val Gardena, and on to the Gardena and Sella pass. At the fork continue up to the Sella pass for 200m and park on the left in the large car park. From here continue on foot to the wall in just 10 minutes.

Cansla is situated at 2000 m and climbing is possible in summer only. The wall faces southwest and receives the early-afternoon sun. It dries quickly even after heavy rainstorms.
