Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


Punta Delle Cinque Dita is located west of the Sella Towers and Sella Pass. It is easily identified by the prominent tower-like feature (The Thumb) to the right of the main summit when viewing from the road. The climbing is relatively easy and this often leads to crowds. The rock is of average quality, but the summit itself is quite worthwhile.

Getting There 

Start at the Sella Pass Hut. You can either hike from here in about 1 hour, or, take the lift which deposits you more or less at the base of the route.
