Thanks to Fred Spicker for adding this peak.

The Grosse Fermeda is the highest peak on the west end of the Geisler (Odle) Group in the north central part of the Dolomites. The north side is very steep. The south side rises impressively in a number of large steps and is cut by several diagonal steep walled couloirs (schlucht). The E.T. Compton of the first ascent party was the well known English artist. The Southwest Face and the Southeast Ridge are included in "Dolomiten Die 100 Schoensten Touren - Band 2 Westlicher Teil" (Dolomites the 100 Finest Routes - Volume 2 Western Part) by Gino Buscaini and Silvia Metzeltin with Gaston Rebuffat.

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

    It was my first alpine tour and we were so slow on the ascent that we didn't make it in time.
  • Log #10175 - by Fred Spicker on June 28, 1999
    Ascent via the Southwest Face. The route is mostly a scramble with only a bit of interesting climbing near the top.
