The Sassolungo group is directly adjacent to the Sella group – sitting directly to the West of Sella Pass. This group of mountains is a horseshoe shaped set of peaks opening to the northwest. The North and Northeast faces of Sassolungo are complex, long (1000 meters) routes rising out of the Gardena valley below Sella pass. The South and West faces offera greater variety of routes of different lengths and difficulties.
Most of the routes can be approached from Sella Pass, just north of Canazei. Paths circle the entire group.

Though this route is near Sella Pass, it is quiet and rarely crowded. The route ascends an hourglass (Chalice) shaped south facing wall to the left of the Rizzi Chimney. It is a full days effort with some great rock mixed in with some fairly loose rock with the crux tossed in at the very end of the climb. The approach is long and the descent is a bit tricky and long as well, making for a full day outing.Pitch description:Pitch 1 – 40 m II: Climb up some easy ledges to a stance near the nichePitc...[more] Browse More Classics in International
