Vie Fixed-aid climbing routes
To tackle the many fixed-aid climbing routes in Val di Fassa, it is necessary to be trained and sufficiently equipped. Beginners or those who do not feel able to tackle the trails alone, the Tita Piaz Guide Mountaineering School and the Ciamorces de Fasha based in Canazei and Campitello, are available for lessons and accompaniment.
Depart from Rifugio Contrin along path 606 and climb the valley of the same name to 2400 m. The path deviates to the left towards the Marmolada Crossing. The final stretch is the most difficult and should be tackled with appropriate equipment (rope and e crampons).
