Overview

The destination is Punta Penia, 3,343 meters, the highest peak in the Dolomites, following the trail of the Viennese mountaineer-explorer Paul Grohmann, the first who reached the Marmolada in 1864. The itinerary winds along the north side of the mountain, crossing the moraine and then the glacier that hosted the famous City of Ice during the Great War. On the way to the top, you pass aided rock sections in order to get to the "Schena de mul" (back of the mule), the last spectacular stretch before reaching the Capanna Punta Penia.

Morain and glacier crossing to reach the Punta Penia Hut

Transfer from Canazei to Fedaia pass and departure from the former Marmolada chairlift (2,074 meters above sea level), along the “Sat 606" path to the former Pian dei Fiacconi refuge (2,626 meters) destroyed in winter 2021 by a massive avalanche. We will then find the Glacier Hut (2,700 m.) as a support point, not far away. After passing the moraine, you proceed in ropes crossing the glacier up to the final crevasse and to the "rocks", a decisive aided section that leads to the terminal shoulder near the summit.
