Overview

Sassolungo "di Cibiana" not to be confused with the more famous Sassolungo/Langkofel in Valgardena.
It is also called "El Cimòn" for the people of Ospitale di Cadore, and "Sasslòngo" for the people of Cibiana village.
Very impressive if seen from north when crossing the Passo di Cibiana by car.

It's part of the Bosconero group and also fourth summit for height after the Sasso di Bosconero 2464m, Sasso di Toanella 2430m and Sfornioi di Mezzo 2425m.

The impressive north wall
The north wall


It has a pyramid shape with an oustanding rocky wall on the north side above the valley of Cibiana that has made it interesting for climbers.
The wall is the most imposing point of a long ridge made of many pinnacles and peaks with an east-west direction, that start from the summit of Sfornioi nord and finish with the Sass de Mezodì.
The south side is a smooth gravelled flank covered of bushes and small trees totally enclosed into the Campestrin valley.

It has been probably climbed for the first time in the 19th century by local chamois hunters.
