Punta Grohmann, Cinque Dita and Sassolungo from th...
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.
