Route Climbed: Via ferrata (Hanns-Seiffert-Weg) Date Climbed: July 19, 2003  Sucess!

Though it was high season, the route was not crowded at all. Most of the time I climbed alone, enjoying superb views. Also the summit was all mine, with nobody around! Descended along the normal route.

Route Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: August 1st, 2004  Sucess!

We walked from below, from the Fedaia lake, up almost to the hut, then westwards on Marmolada notch and by the ferratta to the summit. As I forgot at home the rope, we were very pleased as a group of Brixen alpine club members took us on their rope. Thanks to Oliver Jaist and his colleagues! So we descended by the north route. The snow ridge is nice, the rock passage not hard (but traffic was very dense) and the glacier to the hut is fast for a descent.

Route Climbed: From Rifugio Contrin and via ferrata Date Climbed: August 1982

My first "Ferrata". It was difficult due to the presence of ice and recent snow.

Thinking of Nace Cretnik ! The Guide-friend of mine. He now is "over" the clouds, looking at all the mountains of the world.

Route Climbed: normal route Date Climbed: 18 july 2003

Unfortunately we had to return because of some very bad weather heading our way. We reached the rocks but had to return and we just got back in the refuge before thunder&lightening struck the mountain. Better luck next time.

Route Climbed: normal from Fedaia Date Climbed: 2001 June  Sucess!

This was our party's second trip to Marmolada since we had walked up directly from the lake in July 1998. This time we used cableway, and spent the night in the winter room of the hut close by the summit. The timing was a good choice to avoid the crowd.

Route Climbed: Ferrata Cresta Ovest Date Climbed: August 1995  Sucess!

Very nice going up on the Cresta Ovest. Very nice going down on the Via Normale. Even if it is not so "adventure-like" the fact that it is possible to have a warm meal at the top is very nice (once you reached it).

Route Climbed: South Route Date Climbed: 15.08.2002.  Sucess!

Me And My friend Slobodan Mizdrak Started At 7:00AM from the lago di Fedaia.

It was easy to 2700m, then we were had a very difficult problem with a steep icefall between 2700-3050m, because we did not have any equipment for Climbing and crossing the Marmolada glacier. When we were passed the icefall, the other was easy. 150m vertical climb(UIAA I-III) and we were on highest point of Dolomites: Marmolada - PUNTA PENIA.

P.S. Slobodan forgot his hiking shoes so he was reached the summit in SNEAKERS!

Lucky bastard could get killed!!!

Odlièno nam je bilo!

Išli smo normalnom rutom.

Došli smo do vrha za 3 sata i 10 minuta.

Vrijeme bez oblaæiæa ne nebu.

Treba se paziti pukotina u ledu.

Route Climbed: Hanns-Seyffer-Weg - west ridge ferrata Date Climbed: July 18th 1988  Sucess!

a long round trip from Contrin hut. First 900 m ascent to the Marmolada pass. A little snow at the via ferrata made it more difficult. We descended on the normal route (having rope, ice axe, crampons would have been better) and finally we had to ascend again to the Marmoladascharte to descend again to the Contrin hut.
