Punta Col de Varda © James Rushforth

Crag features

This elegant little peak is situated at the southern tip of the small Cadini di Misurina group,
just east of Lago di Misurina. The peak is easily distinguished by a chimney-crack that splits the middle of the face. This striking feature must have appealed to Emilio Comici who had a reputation for seeking 'golden lines' that went direct. Nowadays it is usual to exit left just below the steep headwall and thus the grade is fairly amenable. The logical line, good climbing and easy access from the top of the Col de Varda chairlift makes this an appealing climb which is becoming increasingly popular.

Approach notes

From Cortina, take the Tre Croci Pass (SR48) east following signs for 'Misurina'. After 13km turn left onto the SS48b following signs to 'Misurina' which you reach in a further 2km. Park either on the lake shore or at the Col de Varda chairlift car park. The climb is usually accessed via the chairlift.
