Thanks to Fred Spicker for adding this peak.

The First Sella Tower is the most westerly of the four Sella Towers just east of Sella Pass. The towers are the most westerly part of the Sella Group. The First Tower is the most accessible and has many routes ranging from the Normal Route with places of II to extreme sport climbing routes. Because of the ease of access and the popularity of the climbs, many are polished.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of First Sella Tower in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
