Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionPasso Sella is perhaps the busiest climbing area in the entire Dolomites range and for good reason. Within a few minutes walk exist literally hundreds of multi-pitch routes of all grades and all types (traditional and sport). The majority of the routes catch a fair amount of sun so tend to be dry and climbable most days in the mid summer and fall even during unsettled weather (unlike the North faces and even West faces during some of the wetter seasons).
For organizational purposes, the routes listed in this area include those in the South Western aspects of the group extending from Val Lasties (the valley to the right of Piz Ciavazes) up over Passo Sella and back around the Western side to Passo Gardena. (Piz Ciavezes, all the Sella Towers, Torre delle Mesules)
Getting ThereFrom the tourist town of Canazei drive East to the round about, take the last exit in the round about and drive up the hill towards Passo Sella and Passo Pordoi on road #48. At the junction a few kilometers up hill cross the road (you have to yield to downhill traffic) and go up road 242 all the way up the many switch backs to the top of the pass. Park at the appropriate location for the mountain you intend to climb.
