Testa del Bartoldo is a major high point on the Pomagagnon Ridge. It's south facing and may have Spring access earlier than many of the surrounding peaks, with a correspondingly longer climbing season. The Pomagagnon South face is crossed by 5 major diagonal ledges, rising from left to right, which allow easy escape in case of weather change. Conversely, one may traverse on to the face and avoid some of the lower pitches and poor rock.

Getting There 

Several access points from Cortina d'Ampezzo.
