Beautiful scenery, great climbing at the 'City of Rocks'. © James Rushforth

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.

Approach notes

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

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.


Guidebooks

The Dolomites : Rock Climbs and Via Ferrata

A big book to the magnificent Dolomites in northern Italy. This guide covers everything you need for a climbing trip regardless of ability, whether it be sport, trad, via ferrata or a combination of all three. It features all the major areas and is the only guidebook available to have such comprehensive coverage.
More info
Grades somewhat iffy, some are easy or fair, very many are extremely underestimated.

Great place to go if it's raining, just keep walking around and you'll find a crag with a rain free aspect. Sector 2 is especially good for dry climbing in the rain.
Steve Perry - 19/Aug/15
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.
