Crag features

Porte Neigre, at first glance, is a somewhat uninspiring cliff, especially when one considers the scale and grandeur of the surrounding peaks. However those that dismiss it as purely a pedestal on which Rifugio Preuss and Rifugio Vajolet sit would miss two excellent modern bolted routes. Via del Rifugio and in particular Via vuoto d'aria are well worth seeking out, particularly for those looking for something a bit more relaxing in an otherwise harsh environment. ©Rockfax

Approach notes

Take the Pera-Rifugio Gardeccia shuttle/taxi and follow path 7 signed to 'Rifugios Preuss' and 'Vajolet' for 20 minutes.
