Description

The town of Cortina d'Ampezzo is dominated on it's north side by the Pomagagnon Group. Access to this fine series of summits is easy from this superb valley base, which is well endowed with lodging and many fine eating establishments.

The Pomagagnon Group runs on a West to East direction, beginning on the west edge with Punta Fiames, Punta della Croce, and Campinile Dimai; a central portion contains the summits of Croda Longes, Croda Pomagagnon, Testa del Bartoldo, and Costa del Bartoldo; after another Forcella (gap), the summits resume with Punta Cestelis and Punta Erbing.

The Cristallo group is essentially a continuation of this ridge line but bends around north forming a leaf shaped group of mountains with the Pomagagnon ridge extending off it southern base like a stem of the leaf. This group includes Monte Cristallo, Piz Popena and Monte Popena and is crossed by the popular Ferrata Sentiero Ivano Dibona. The eastern aspect of this group sits above the village of Misurina and provides multiple relatively easy routes about 45 minutes hike from town.

Great climbing on solid rock. Park at the hospital and walk up past the helicopter landing pad. Follow the path to a marked path to the right and up to the rock.

P8 quite hard (harder for me than the cruxpitches). Aug 18, 2013

How long is the approach? Aug 14, 2016
Approach to the Jori Arete on Punta Fiames takes about an hour or maybe a bit less. Other routes on the more distant formations take up to 1 1/2 hours or thereabouts. Nov 6, 2016
