The new climbing route on the Croda da Lago follows a clear logic line, developing on the left trapeze of the great lower bastion on slabs, corners, and cracks up to the great grassy ledge. Rock quality is great, offering a pleasant and safe climb.
The route is fully bolted by fix.
10 quickdraws, cords and slings, friend, and a 60-meter rope
Mountain group: Croda da Lago
Left Trapeze on the Croda da Lago
Approach: 20 minutes from the Croda da Lago Shelter.
From the shelter, follow a dirt road taking you to the Forcella Ambrizzola. After walking 10 to 15 minutes, turn right and climb a grassy slope taking you under the face. The shortest route to reach the shelter is along trail #437 (later #434) starting at the Ru Curto Bridge, located along the road to Passo Giau. This route is doable in about 2 hours.
Those who prefer arriving at the Croda da Lago Shelter in comfort can take advantage of the Jeep service, four people minimum occupancy; round trip is € 25.00 per person.
Descend crossing the great grassy ledge to the north, until you can glimpse a large notch overlooking the lake. With two 25-meter double ropes you reach a new ledge going always north (about 50 meters) to the next rappels taking you back to the base of the face.
Follow the approach route to return.
