Colfosco and Pissadù ice fall

Mika Huhtamaki

Colfosco ice falls are below the great vertical faces of Sassongher and Sass de la Crusc. What a spectacular environment for climbing ice falls!

The approach to the ice falls is only 30 minutes. It is actually a short time to enjoy the surrounding views. Every step you take the mountains around you reminds how small humans are. A good reminder for a humble attitude.

But the climbing is good too. During this time of the year the ice fall was still in a good condition which is not necessarily the case every spring. The Pissadù ice fall has 3 logical pitches which make a total of 90 meters of climbable ice. Grade is not too hard 3+ and it is in shadow for most of the day.

The nature of the climb is a small adventure in a deep valley. Enjoyable and easy to access makes this ice fall a good reason to visit Colfosco. Climbing ice in a place like this makes us humble. Mi piace!
