Description 

Punta Fiames is a very attractive peak at the Western end of the chain of mountains forming the Pomagagnon Group. Two main routes, each with several variations, attain the summit: the "Via Commune" (regular route), and the "Spigolo Fiames," which follows the extremely attractive knife-edged SE arete directly to the summit.


Getting There 

Parking is near the Hospital at the base of Punta Fiames.

The route follows several easy pitches of the Via Commune , until the ledge system for a rising traverse across the face to the base of the Arete becomes obvious. The angle steepens and climbing becomes somewhat more challenging, but never extreme. The "crux" involves a series of moves around a corner onto the East face where a wide crack is surmounted back onto the arete proper. This is a leaning offwidth that is liberally supplied with pitons, and may approach 5.8 in difficulty. The options be...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

I just came across my old German Guidebook:
Dolomiten-Kletterfuehrer II, Dr. Guenther Langes;
the guidebook description : "Eine der elegantesten und reizvollsten Kletterein in den Dolomiten. Im oberen Teil sehr ausgesezt." Translation: One of the most elegant and rewarding rock climbs in the Dolomites. In the upper portion, very exposed.
