One of the gems of Sottoguda - La Cattedrale Ramo Sinistro © James Rushforth

Crag features

Probably the most famous iceclimbing venue in Italy outside of Colne. Positioned at the base of the Marmolada between the villages of Sottoguda and Malga Ciapela, the Serrai di Sottoguda is a steep sided gorge with many spectacular icefalls.

Approach notes

The Sottoguda gorge is easily accessible. From Belluno drive up the Cordevole valley past Agordo, Alleghe and Caprile and continue as for Passo Fedaia. Before reaching Malga Ciapela turn off the main road and enter into Sottoguda. Drive through this village to where the road ends at the beginning of the gorge. Continue on foot to arrive swiftly at the base of the first waterfalls.
