Piz Pordoi is the huge blocky mountain the dominates the right skyline to the East of the Sella towers and Piz Ciavazes. The NW face is a huge wall, split up high by a massive terrace, the Southern aspect dominates the view from Passo Pordoi. It contains many routes of all difficulties, a Tramway that goes up the south side and a spectacular though difficult Via Ferrata on the South face.
Getting There [Edit]
From Cortina, drive east on Highway 48 past the Cinque Torri, over Passo di Falzarego, and then to Passo Pordoi. All the South facing routes, the Tramway (easiest descent) and the difficult via Ferrata Cesare Piazzetta are accessed from this pass. For the NW face, drive over the pass a few miles down the west side of Passo Pordoi, turn right onto the Sellajoch road. Soon after the turn, the water-streaked face of Piz Pordoi is seen looming above a restaurant and refuge and Piz Ciavezes is further up across the canyon to the left of Piz Pordoi. Park at the restaurant Pian Schiavaneis or just past this at the climber parking area to the right. 200 meters up past the restaurant is a path into the Val Lasties. Hike up along this path until below your chosen route.
