Sass de Rocia is the largest monoliths, almost two hundred meters long and a hundred meters wide, overhanging on all sides. It's split in half by a crack, where there is the via ferrata that leads to the top. There is a huge shelf covered with a larch grove and the 'Bivacco Pian delle Stelle.
Sass de la Murada seems a huge sail, overlooking the Cordevole valley in a wonderful panoramic position. Its name recalls that on the summit there are the medieval remains of a tower from where it was possible to communicate with the Castle of Andraz and with the Sommariva castle in Alleghe. The easiest way of ascent is mountaineering and rather delicate, although not difficult.
Sass de la Gusela (= needle) is a very elegant and slender spire that rises for about seventy meters.
In the area there are over 200 climbing lines, the difficulties range from 4 to 8c.
Climbing is almost always technical, it requires contact with the rock.
Before your outdoor activity, it is good idea consulting the local section of the C.A.I., the managers of the various refuges, the tourist offices and the Alpine Guides of the area to be updated on the conditions of the routes. The Consortium proposes itineraries of its territory for the tourism promotion, and in no case can it be held responsible for any damage that may arise from failure to observe the basics due to the work of time and atmospheric agents.
