BETA PHOTO: Southwest face of the Second Sella Tower


A little taller and more impressive looking than its' smaller sibling. The north face has a couple of the most popular mid-grade routes in the group. The climbing is generally steep, on solid rock, and covered in good holds. However, with the amount of traffic that these routes see, comes a highly polished climbing surface.

Getting There 

The approaches all start from the top of Sella Pass. Most of the climbing can be reached in about 15 minutes.

Climbing Season

For the Dolomites area.
