Marmolada - Dolomites

On the top of "The Queen of the Dolomites"

The “Marmolada”, also called the "Queen of the Dolomites", with the 3343 meters of Punta Penia, is the highest peak of the Dolomites. The northern side is dominated by the glacier, unique in the Dolomites and the southernmost of the Eastern Alps. The south side is famous for its 1000 meter high vertical limestone wall. The 360 ​​° panorama enjoyed from the top is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular in the Dolomites and the glimpse of the surrounding Dolomite giants is impressive.

“Thanks” to the closure of the cableway, which led to the “Pian dei Fiacconi” refuge, the crowds of mountaineers climbing the Marmolada are a distant memory. This, however, made the approaches longer and even more tiring to climb to the summit. Only the most trained will have the opportunity to make the ascension in one day, otherwise it will be necessary to stay overnight at the “Pian dei Fiacconi” Refuge. In any case, excellent physical condition and experience in the use of crampons are required because of the high mountain environment.

The Outside Planet propose the ascent of the normal route to “Punta Penia” through the glacier and the via ferrata on the west ridge.
