Citta dei Sassi (City of Rocks)

Dolomites, ITALY

Climbs 333 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 2250m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Città dei Sassi is a huge sprawling boulderfield located directly under Sassolungo on the Sella Pass. From a climber's perspective this 'City of Rocks' has an incredible amount to offer and is undoubtedly one of the best sport and bouldering venues in the Dolomites. The views are stunning and the location idyllic.

Sport sector layout is taken from the Rockfax: The Dolomites - Rock Climbs and Via Ferrata (2014).

I've added the bouldering onto the bottom of the crag page. Older boulder problems are marked with red paint. Newer problems are marked with blue.

Access notes
Roadside parking is available along the top of the Sella Pass. There are also 2 rifugios nearby with parking available.

Takes a bit of work to find your way around the different sectors but patience will be rewarded with some great climbing in the low to medium grade range.
