Climbs 200 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 2128m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
The highest peak in the Dolomites, with a large glacier on it's north flank and some tremendous routes on its south face, along with some great Via Ferratas.

There are over 200 known routes on the Marmolada's south face alone. For the purposes of this page I've only added the well known classics, see the 'Marmolada South Face' guidebook for a full list! I've stuck with the grading system used in the guidebooks as due to the number of insitu pitons constantly changing it is hard to give an English trad grade.

* For a review of the South Face guidebook read Jack's article found at .

The Marmolada is also a fantastic winter venue with some excellent iceclimbs and gullys. Vernel is not to be missed! Also some great offpiste ski touring / mountaineering routes, Lydia been arguably the best.

Approach notes
The Marmolada can be accessed easily via the Fedai Pass from either Canazei or Caprile. During the winter it can easily be skied to from Arabba and the Sellaronda.
