Punta Nera

Punta Nera is a peak right over Cortina d'Ampezzo in the Sorapiss group. It rises abruptly above the town, with a proeminence of 1800m. The summit can be reached only with some climbing I and II UIAA. No protections, the ascent must be taken with caution. Great mountain, it has only a few climbs each year, which makes the climb most rewarding. Breathtaking views, severe alpine environment.

    Free rock climb from the Punta Nera pass at 2720m. Some I and II UIAA with no protections. Danger of falling rocks, but very rewarding climb. We were the 3rd party to reach the summit this year.
