Col Ombert

Climbs 1 – Rocktype UNKNOWN – Altitude 2602m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
This remote peak tucked away at the head of the Val San Nicolò was originally equipped in 1915 by the Austrian Kaiserjeger troops because of its obvious strategic position. The via ferrata was then restored in 1996 and now serves as an excellent day

out. The approach is long but very scenic. The via ferrata itself is inconsistent with some steep sections that are difficult for the grade alternating with much easier slab climbing. The rock throughout is pretty loose and care must be taken. Whilst the climbing itself isn't the best in the area, the views and situations are superb. The route is highly recommended to those seeking a long and beautifully scenic day out.

Approach notes
The peak is situated at the head of the Val San Nicolò, a beautiful valley running east from Pozza di Fassa.
