A long, demanding but amazing and wild climbing itinerary on the sheer cliff face of Croda Marcora (in the Sorapiss massif), which is the highest rock face of the whole Dolomites range.
This challenging itinerary links Cortina d'Ampezzo to San Vito di Cadore. It goes along a ledge called Cengia del Banco, which crosses the vertical rock face approximately in the middle, below the hanging glacier of Croda Marcora, and passes extremely steep slopes. The equipped path continues to reach the bivuoac Slataper and, from there, the path becomes an ordinary, quite long trail surrounded by a beautiful landscape, from where it is easy to spot steinbocks, chamois and marmots.
This itinenary is suitable for expert, well-trained hikers, who have good knowledge of the dolomitic terrain.
