Description

Icons of the incredible Dolomites of Italy, the Sella Towers above the Sella Pass are a magnificent place to rock climb. And on this full day trip, you will get to choose from a number of different routes from the collection of stone towers.

There are four towers in the Sella Towers. However, the fourth tower is not very well known. As a result, our focus will be on the first three towers. The first tower is the smallest, and is the most popular with climbers. The routes on the first tower are shorter than the others. Hence making them accessible for climbers who do not have a lot of prior rock climbing experience.

The second tower is more challenging, as it has a famed steep north face. There are different routes that can be enjoyed on the second tower. One route is the Messner route, which is the north face direct route. This route is tough, and experience is necessary to climb it. There is also the Kasnapoff route, which is often referred to as a classic route that will take you on the northwest ridge of the tower.

The third tower in the Sella Towers is the largest of the three. It is also home to the famous Vinatzer route, which is definitely worth a try if you have the experience.

Regardless of your experience level, it is important that all participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

Climbing on the Sella Towers in the Dolomites is a treat for any climber. If you would like to spend a day scaling the walls of these great towers, just send me a request.

I also offer a rock climbing adventure in the Val di Fassa, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
