|fagin||West ridge via ferrata |
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013
|Had heard that the via ferrata was pretty hard and exposed but it turned out to be disappointingly straightforward. Hut at the summit was closed and views were hazy in the extreme. Loved my time in the Dolomites but this was no highlight|

|Marmolada was a very special mountain. We climbed across the pretty via ferrata (west) crossing the small glacier with crampons (it had some ice). We descended across the normal route using rope in the glacier because it had a crevasse near of the area of the descent from the summit. It was a day to remember for a long time.|

|Hans-Seyffert Weg - June 2012.|
Nice and easy via-ferrata. Offers great views to the South. Short, 4,5 hours round trip from the upper station of the cable-car.
North face - August 2010.
Nice route, bit complicated. Finished the face exact at the point where the normal route exits the cables at Schena de Mul.
No views from the top at all.
Descended by the normal route.
Trip with Ania (Mooliczek) and Igor (Igi).

|mooliczek||North face |
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010
|Very pretty line and absolutely enjoyable, fast climbing. |
More demanding if the snow conditions are poor (like we had).
North face offers many options to take. Especially, it gets a bit complicated (if it comes to the routefinding) when there isn't much snow on it (like we had).
We did the "rocky" part mostly on the left side of the face. Many rocks uncovered formed unexpected obstacles, but manageable. The quality of rock itself is horrbile there, so in fact most of our rock set gear was useless.
But overall - great trip, great company, great climbing!
Done with Igi and Jck.

|rentschl||Aliuminum Crampons on Punta Penia Route?|
|Just curious to see what others who have done the Punta Penia route from rifugio Fiacconi would think about using aluminum crampons on this route. I'm looking to save weight but I'm not sure this would make sense. I'll be over in August so the via ferrate section should be free of ice/snow normally. But it sounds like there could be verglas on it depending upon the weather leading up to the climb.|
I'm coming from the states so I was thinking of just bringing both steel and aluminum crampons and then deciding once I'm over there.
Any comments appreciated.

|Mountain_girl||Ferrata route from Fedaia pass and Rif.Falier |
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2006
|I climbed to the peak via ferrata twice. Once I approached it from the North from Lago di Fedaia: a beautiful ascent with views of the Sella and other groups. Before, also in the summer, I hiked up from Malga Ciapela through Rif. Falier and approached it close to the impressive southern walls. This route was longer and more lonely with almost no snow. Both are unforgettable and beautiful routes and the almost 2h ferrata to the top is amazing. Quite exposed at times but very well secured. Even in fog it was possible to navigate and reach the peak easily.|

|damgaard||Normal route + VF route |
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2008
|Climbed Marmolada on the 22. using the normal glacier route up and down (wind was too strong for the via ferrata route). rdeached the top in three hours. Down again in 1,5 h.|
Climbed again on the 24th, via ferrate up and glacier down (though not much glacier left). The Via ferrata route is not that difficult and much less crowded. Very nice mountain indeed.

|We went both up and down through the glacier. The weather wasn't very good, but you can't have it always, can you???|
Was a pity, that the next day the weather was really nice.

|landroval||north-west face |
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2005
|we climbed the ice-route on the north-west face, starting from Passo Fedaia. The first section was difficult because there wasn'n any snow and we had to "freeclimib" a wall covered with thin ice... crampons didn't grip!! |
Dolomites' Lady is always worth being climbed.
