SASS PORDOI - NORTHWEST FACE


The mighty northwest face of Sass Pordoi is one of the largest and most impressive in the Dolomites. The dark and smooth-looking face is intimidating on first (and indeed subsequent) viewings. Amazing then that the classic Fedele route goes at a relatively amenable IV+. When combined with the Dibona Upper Wall this 24-pitch monster is a Dolomites classic. The terrace at three-quarters height provides a possible escape for those pressed for time. The face suffers from seepage and indeed often has a couple of waterfalls. As such it is best to wait for a dry spell before attempting any of the routes here.
