Sass Pordoi  Sucess!

Kessler and I decided to head to Piz Boè today. We rode the cable car up to Sas Pordoi and headed for Piz Boè, mostly on the snow. The route to Piz Boè was a fairly easy rock scramble with fixed cables. Coming from the US, it was weird to have a restaurant and hut on the summit! We ate a fancy lunch before headed down the other side of the mountain to Pizes del Valun and Le Pointe. We only saw one person on this route. The couloir below Le Pointe was filled with snow and very steep, but there was a fixed rope in places.

After reaching the Grand Valacia we headed long a trail on a bench between the huge cliffs and circled around to the south side of the mountains. There were a lot of marmots in the meadows. We then took a steep trail down to the WWI monument (Ossario del Pordoi Kreigerdenkmal) where 8000 soldiers are buried from WWI and 800 from WWII. Sombering place. After visiting the monument, we walked back to the Passo Pordoi and took a bus back to Canazei.

After Piz Boe  Sucess!

Girlfriend and I climbed the Cesare Piazzetta route to the summit of Piz Boe and then bagged Sass Pordio before taking the cable car down. Nice round trip.

Route Climbed: Fedele with Dibona Finish  Sucess!

Dan Clifford and I climbed the long Fedele Route on the West Face, then finished to the top on the upper 6 pitches of the Dibona Route. all I can say. Packed every kind of climbing into 26 full value pitches. Climbing through the waterfall was more like canyoning than climbing!

Mariakante  Sucess!

Nice climb, we actually took the wrong start... to the right of the couloir where Mariakante starts, there's another route in which we mistakenly started but rappelled back down after noting our mistake... Nice to have a beer immediately after topping out ;-)

Re: Mariakante

We almost made the same mistake. All those bolts looked inviting, but it also looked much more difficult higher up.

Maria Kante  Sucess!

This was the only rock climb we were able to do in the Dolomites due to foot injury. If you can only do one rock climb on the Sella Massif....
My wife and I hadn't rock climbed much in the past year or so. this made this rather exposed 9 pitch route all the more exciting. Great variety of climbing, and nice exposure in places too. And my knees were grateful for the speedy Gondola descent.

on the path  Sucess!

Got there during a 10-day trekking, a long time ago...

Route Climbed: Via Maria Date Climbed: aug 1999  Sucess!

Even if I prefer ways and mountains that are not crowded, the Via Maria is a great way. Hard, but not too much difficult. The fun aspect is to end the way on the terrace of the restaurant among quiet tourists having their relaxed lunch!!! (perhaps they are right, or not???)

Route Climbed: S-butress ("Maria-Kante") Date Climbed: July 1992  Sucess!

I climbed the route with my wife (at the moment we climbed it she was not my wife but my girl friend). At the first pitch she was hurt by a rockfall but she was able to continue to the top.
