Climbing in Antermoia in the Dolomites
Cliff climbing at Passo delle Erbe pass
For years now climbing has been constantly growing in Val Badia and in the Dolomites which have become the preferred goals for lots of sporty climbers. The particular type of rock, the fascinating vertical shapes and the undoubted beauty of the landscape of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage mountains make lots of climbers want to measure themselves against the walls of these places.
Thanks to the efforts of local climbing lovers some notable cliffs have been born, amongst which is certainly that of Passo delle Erbe – Würzjoch. From the carpark following path nr. 8a up to the crossroad where it meets path 8b you reach the cliff in approx. 30 minutes.
In a unique natural backdrop at 1,800m of altitude on the northern side of Sasso Putia you'll find 41 climbs scattered across the large Dolomite masses. The difficulty of the climbs range from 3a to 8b with some of the most beautiful climbs in Südtirol. Amongst these the Riss-Kant (8a+) at the straightest central part which is certified as being at the eighth grade according to the French scale. The climbing cliff at Passo delle Erbe is do-able from May until October. And for those who would like to take a break or have lunch in between climbs there's our Sot Pütia hut which is just a stone's throw away from the cliff.
Other notable cliffs in Val Badia are located at Pederü after the village of San Vigilio di Marebbe, at Sass Dlacia close to San Cassiano in Alta Badia and on Passo Falzarego where close to Sasso Stria you'll find a boulder zone and a cliff also suitable for beginners.
