Pordoi "Pisciadoi"

At the Pordoi West Face in the Sella Group.

First ascent: October 16 th 1994 with Gerold Moroder (on the left of the Niagara Route ).
As you have to cross a waterfall the route (a wonderful West Face) is often wet.
The upper part brings you through the Dibona Route to the summit. The rock is perfect but it can be climbed only in late autumn.
Height of the wall: about 450 m
Rope pitches: 9
Height of the whole Pordoi Face: about 700 m
Grade of difficulty: up to the upper 6 th

The name “Pisciadoi” means “Waterfall”.

Descent: over the “ Normal Route ” or by cable way.
