The south face of Sass Pordoi is home to several excellent and very popular routes. Despite the long approach the sunny face nestled under the Sass Pordoi cable car has a friendly feel in stark contrast to the brooding northwest face (page 172). The face is substantially smaller than its northwest counterpart providing moderate length climbs. The sunny aspect, excellent rock, relatively amenable grades and the opportunity of a cable car back down ensure the routes are often busy. The South Pillar is home to the classic Via Maria/Mariakante - one of the most popular routes in this area. From Canazei, take the SS48 east out of the town towards the Sella Pass. Turn right after 5km still heading for the Pordoi Pass. Continue to the top of the pass and the large car park of the Sass Pordoi cable car station.
