Comments: I began counting the bolts and began losing track of the ones counted around 15. There appear to be at least 3 major lines in addition to combination variants.

Comments: Probably the most exciting cable car/gondola ride imaginable.

Comments: There are 5 climbers visible in the photograph, a party of 3 approaching the ridge, and a second party just reaching the scree terrace.

Comments: The route has one slightly harder section near the start of p.2. It's well protected by a good piton. I rated the moves at 5.6/5.7, or UIAA Gr. IV+. The Bernardi guidebook shows this as a short "chimney," but it's more of a tight right facing corner.

Comments: A recent discussion of the rock quality with guidebook author Mauro bernardi, between the starts to the Comici vs. Via della Guide confirms what I had been told by other climbers visiting the area. The start of the Comici has some pretty awful rock. I gave a 4 star quality rating to Via della Guida on that basis.

Comments: Climbers are at the first belay ledge, getting ready for the thrilling summit pitch.

Comments: Some recent information from mountainproject.com member drunkfox indicates that a massive rockfall took place a few years ago which wiped out much of the "Fifth Ledge Descent." Be advised the descent has changed.

Comments: This pitch finishes directly on the arête to the climber's left, and uses holds on both sides of the knife-edge. Thrilling and exposed!

Comments: These final moves to the summit block via a knife-edge arête are definitely excitingly exposed.

Comments: I enjoyed this climb, but the time-worn first pitch is as greasy and smooth as can be imagined. My rating of 2 stars was a downgrade from the final, exposed ascending traverse to an exciting summit, which was definitely worth 3 stars as a stand alone. It is reasonably well protected by cemented in pitons and large eyebolts. If climbing this with a beginner, definitely take a 60 or 70 meter rope in case of a fall on pitch 2; then lowering to the ground is an option.

Comments: This is an excellent "family" climb for those with inexperienced beginners and smaller children Care must be taken on the described rappels, and descent of the face climbed is a safer alternative. I repeated this one in my Boulder-X approach shoes, and still found it very easy.

Comments: Piz Pordoi directly in center behind climber. The "Fedele" route cruises up the black rock towards the left.

Comments: This was one of the first routes in Europe with an American (Oliver Perry-Smith) as one of the first ascentionists. Many of Perry-Smith's routes in the Dresdener Sandstein are still quite serious and were of 5.9-5.10 difficulty.

Comments: This is the famous "Kaiserjaegerweg" descent, using paths from the military fortifications of the First World War. Not quite a "via ferrata," but exposed terrain otherwise.

Comments: This route is #1 on my 2014 Dolomites "hit list." The wall is very attractive and has a reasonable approach and descent for a starter/introduction to Piz Ciavazes climbing.

Comments: I was screwed out of doing this route this past year by a combination of injured knee and early snow in September. My information was abstracted from the German language guidebook, personal contact with it's author Mauro Bernardi, and other local climbers.

Comments: This route lies to the right of the Big Micheluzzi, Schubert, and the central gully system. The Rampenfuehre, the easiest of lower face routes , lies just to the right from this climb.
