The highway from Selva (Wolkenstein) to Covara delineates the Northern boundary of the Sella Group. Everything to the South belongs to the Sella. For organizational purposes the routes listed here are all on the Northern faces of the Sella Massif (south of the road) from the top of Gardena pass down to the town of Corvara. Routes on the opposite side of the road belong in the Odle group. Routes on the West faces of the Sella group (driving from Sella Pass to Gardena pass) should be listed in the Sella pass area of this section.

Getting There 

From Canazei drive up to Sella pass, then down the hill to the first junction in the road and then drive back up the road to Gardena pass. The routes will be on the right as you come up over the pass (the North faces of the Sella Group).

Driving directions from Wolkenstein/Selva: Initially follow the Sellapass route from Wolkenstein until a road junction is reached; clearly marked "Groednerpass." Turn left and go up the hill to the pass.

Ferrata Brigata Tridentina 4th 1 2 I 2 M 1b  Europe : Italy : ... : Via Ferrata
This is rated as a medium difficulty Ferrata so will be easy for an experienced climber. We took our 7 year old son up it with little difficulty (we had to manually move his clips past each post on steep sections, but he had no difficulty otherwise.) The Ferrata is located in a beautiful setting on the Northern aspect of the Sella Massif, ascending Torre Exner, and has a short easy approach. There is a suspension bridge near the top (kids love that) and a bar and resturaunt at the top. It is ve...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
