Cengia di Ball - a long dayhike  Sucess!

Climbed this peak a looong time ago. It was a very foggy day and other than the Cengia di Ball it was a rather boring climb. Nevertheless it's one of the major peaks in the Dolomites - you have to climb it at least once.

From rif Venezia  Sucess!

It was a fantastic day with only 6 people in the monte Pelmo (It was thursday). It was very long for us, specially the descent of great ramp of scree to return from the ridge to the spectacullar cengia di Ball.

It's not a bad idea to carry a small rope (we used one of 14m) for the cengia specially if you find some section of the cengia a little wet or if you have some fear im some exposed places because it has climbing spikes of iron in the wall but generally in a sunny day you can walk slowly without it. The most dangerous pass has a fixed rope in two smalls sections and you can use a string with carabineer for safety.

We came truth a dream because we saw Pelmo in our first visit to Dolomites and we had obssesioned with it and finally 5 year after that ... we climbed it.

I climbed 1700 mt in 1 day starting from Zoppè. Very fabulous mountain. Excatly, no cables into the 1 km of the cengia and final ridge.

Fantastic mountain with good views. Started from campsite at Palafavera to refugio then up normal route. Quite a long walk on scree but well worth it. Also very quiet compared to surrounding peaks.

normal route from Rifugio Venezia  Sucess!

groovy tour on a special mountain. My girlfriend and I spent a week in the Zoldo valley (I had won this in a radio quiz!). We did it in 2 days together with a trip round the mountain as recommended. The exposed Ball-ledge took us a lot of will-power
