Wolkenreise - Florian Thamer Gedächtnisweg

First ascent: Stefan Kopeinig, Peter Manhartsberger 2017
By: Enrico Maioni, Mountain Guide
Area: Dolomites, Group: Cadini di Misurina, Peak: Pilastro di Misurina, Height: 2525m, Country: Italy, Region: Veneto

Wolkenreise up Pilastro di Misurina above Lake Misurina in the Cadini group of the Italian Dolomites is a 5-pitch alpine sports climb that certainly deserves repeating. The first three pitches climb solid slabs, while on the last two pitches the terrain becomes progressively steeper and overhanging even.

The setting is extremely beautiful and provides magnificent views onto Cristallo and Piz Popena, Lake Misurina and Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Torre Leo and Torre del Diavolo, Campanile Dülfer...

On the summit there is a large granite heart, a tribute that Florian's friends left on this Cadini peak. Considering the weight of the sculpture (42 kg), it’s easy to imagine how much effort it took to transport it up there. The summit book is located next to the stone heart.

GETTING THERE

Reach Misurina either from Cortina d’Ampezzo, Auronzo or Toblach / Dobbiaco. From Cortina drive across Passo Tre Croci along the SR48; from Auronzo take the SR 48; from Toblach / Dobbiaco take the SS51 Alemagna south, at Carbonin turn off left on the 48bis following signs for Misurina / Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

ACCESS

From Misurina the easiest way up is to use the chairlift that leads to Rifugio Col de Varda. If the lift is closed, you will have to walk up to the refuge. From the refuge follow path #117 towards Forcella Misurina for 35 to 40 minutes. Leave the path and scramble up to the base of the pillar; a plaque clearly indicates the start of the climb. 50 minutes from the Col de Varda hut.

Via corta ma molto bella, chiodatura sportiva a volte ariosa, direi 6b obbligatorio per divertirsi con tranquillità. Primo tiro continuo e lungo, L4 potrebbe essere bagnato dopo giornate piovose. Arrivati all'ultima sosta in cima, consiglio di calarsi da una sosta a spit e cordini qualche metro più in basso e un po' di metri a sx (faccia a valle, ultima sosta della via 'Aisha guarda il Lago', si vede dalla sosta di fine via), e con la prima calata raggiungere la sosta di L4. Il posto è bello e tranquillo , penso sia difficile trovare altre cordate in giro.Buon divertimento!
