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.

Additional information regarding the two major routes is available in "Classic Dolomite Climbs," Anette Koehler/Norbert Memmel. The "Spigolo Fiames" is an UIAA Gr. V, and the somewhat easier but still classic, "Via Commune," is a UIAA Gr. IV.
