Climbing in the Dolomites – Falesia Sass Dlacia
Unique moments amidst the most beautiful peaks of Alta Badia
Alta Badia is a paradise for climbers and also for those who love fixed-aid climbs or hikers who love to climb up to high altitudes to enjoy the panoramic views from above. Following, are some natural rock climbing halls in Alta Badia:
Sass Dlacia – one of the biggest cliffs in the Dolomites with more than 200 different routes of all varieties from a technical point of view, ideal for families due to its proximity to a picnic area close to the Sass Dlacia campsite just a few kilometres from San Cassiano.
Sass di Stria – a pathway close to Falzarego Pass, very beautiful and not difficult in some splendid Dolomite scenery.
In case of bad weather we'd recommend the indoor boulder and rock climbing halls in San Cassiano and the hall in Corvara where people of all ages can test their abilities on the artificial walls.
For those with sporty ambitions some of the most beautiful climbing areas in the entire Alps are located in Val Badia, which you can tackle in company, or even better – with a local expert Alpine guide.
There are countless other climbing possibilities at Sas dla Crusc, Tofane, Sella, Puez and Cristallo.
Another way to become acquainted with the mountains in a safe way yet still experience the most spectacular walls is through the fixed-aid climbs. These have been implemented artificially onto rocks and walls to enable an ascent with the maximum possible safety. Here are some of the most well-known fixed-aid climbs in Alta Badia:
Tridentina in the gruppo del Sella, Pisciadù
Tomaselli at the end of Fanes Sud
Piz dal Lech in the gruppo del Sella
Piccolo Cir in the Puez-Geisler nature park
