The Marmolada would be a great aim:
Ascent:Via ferrata (West ridge)
Descent via the glacier route (easy) or jumping down the famous 900 m south wall which is nearly vertical.

GusHB wrote:Thanks Thomas, that looks amazing. When you say 'nearly vertical'...... how close to vertical do you think it is? Or are there any smaller sections at the top which are definately vertical or even overhanging?

It´s one of the most difficult routes in the Dolomites, some parts are nearly 90°. From the top I looked down the south wall and I thought that it is nearly 90°.

Have a look at this:

You should post that question on www.sopertopo.com
Some guys there are big fans of base jumping

Sass Pordoi has a very easy ascent/descent by cable car. :D

Of course, Sass Pordoi is in the Sella Group, so you probably already know about it.

Monte Civetta also comes to mind. You can get to the top by via ferrata, but I'm not sure how steep the wall has to be for a base jump.

Other ideas include:
* Lavaredo: Cima Grande and Cima Ovest are not too difficult by their easiest routes,
* Rocchetta Alta di Bosconero,
* Cima Scotoni,
* Burel, in the Schiara Group.
