255 multi-pitch routes in the Sella Group
The Sella Group is simply gigantic: it hosts hundreds and hundreds of routes. Over the years, countless routes have been opened, some of which have been forgotten or buried by new lines, grazing, crossing or overlapping the original routes. More than one new modern route has definitively eliminated the remains of historic lines, most of which have not been repeated and hardly anyone remembers their existence.
A monograph could be written about the famous Torri and Piz Ciavazes alone, but the Sella Group is not only made up of Piz Ciavazes, of which the immense wall of Sass Pordoi is a reminder; and then you only have to turn the corner at the Sella Pass to find yourself in front of the shady walls of the northern flank, walk along under the imposing sport climbing slabs of Cansla and look with awe at the walls of Mesule, a "piton-free zone" par excellence. A little further on, the climbing garden of Frea, with its multi-pitch routes, again offers a more relaxed atmosphere, but the walls of Sass la Luesa bring us back to classic alpinism. Immediately after, the immense walls of Pisciadù and Torre Brunico offer the possibility to try classic and sport top tours. In Colfosco, the Faccia oscura della luna, the Dark Side of the Moon meanwhile offers no less than 15 sport routes by the tireless Roly Galvagni, while the last corner of this rock paradise presented in this guide are the walls around Vallon, near the Kostner Hut.
Versante Sud has focused on the most interesting routes, putting more emphasis on the accuracy of the descriptions than on the number of routes presented.
