4 giorni una estate, 7a, Sass Pordoi, Sella
600m bolted route on rough rock up the NW-face of Sass Pordoi (2950m). Some holds were wet, especially pitch 5 and 7 felt like canyoning...but the rock was sticky enough to squeeze our way up! The climbing is mainly steep and tiring (40-50m pitches); the bolts are far and just some mid-sized Cams and kevlar threads turned out to be useful. Welcome to the Dolomites!!
We shared some belays with two cool Tyrolers, Peter and Martin and had a lot of fun! The crux pitches are pitch 7 (6c+, 40m, overhanging, biiig holds and fairly runout, the '+' stands for the extra water ;o) and pitch 11 (7a, 40m, crimps and sideholds).

200m alpine sport climbing on sticky, light grey rock. Excellent rock quality, good protection (10mm bolts), Ceüse-like climbing on pockets and flared cavitie!
