Mesules is one of the oldest via ferrata routes in the Sella group (it was created in 1912). It’s also one of the most demanding.

The starting point is Sella Pass (2244 m), an alpine valley between the provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol. A 30 min hike following the trail n. 469 to the base of Towers del Sella, will lead us to the start of this via ferrata.

The first part of this ferrata is a 250 m exposed climb on the northwest wall of Piz Ciavazes. However, the second section is less demanding and leads right to the summit of Piz Selva (2941 m).

Once there, we’ll enjoy the wonderful setting and get ready for a quite long descent.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
