The Pala Group is one of the most scenic and enchanting areas of the Dolomites, and the climbs here generally require more time due to longer approaches. Weather is often an issue here, and clouds frequently abound. The major rock climbing summits are the Cima Canali, Cima Della Madonna, and Pala di San Martino; the Cimone della Pala is a beautiful summit viewed driving over the Rolle Pass to the valley base of San Martino di Castrozza.
Access to San Martino di Castrozza is best from either Trento or Bolzano by driving over Passo Rolle, (German: Rolle Pass).
