Description 

Piz Ciavazes is another member of the Sella Group. This mountain is taller and much broader than any of the towers. There are a number of good-quality rotes of medium-hard difficulty. The rock is mostly sound and can be polished from years of climbing in places.


Getting There 

Most of the climbing is approached from on the Sella Pass road. See the route description for more specific details.
