Marmolada is the highest peak in the Dolomites. The north side holds a large glacier, which is partially used for skiing, and includes the cablecars and crowds that accompany most ski resorts. Marmolada's South side is more remote, and offers one of the greatest vertical walls in the Dolomites. A variety of technical climbing routes exist on the wall, most notably on the south and southwest faces.
