Short description

Via ferrata to the Cirspitzen in the Dolomites.

Description

If you have ever crossed the Grödner Joch from Alta Badia to Gröden or vice versa, you will certainly have noticed the jagged and steep rocky ridge on the right. The jagged peaks are called Cirspitzen and some of them are easy to climb. For example, the Große Cirspitze and the Cirspitze V.

Starting point of the tour

Gröden Pass

Destination of the tour

Große Cirspitze

Route description

The starting point of the mountain tour to the Cirspitze V and the Große Cirspitze is the Grödner Joch.  From here you take a wide path to the mountain station of the Dantecepies lift and over a grassy ridge below the Cirspitze V. There the ground becomes steeper and more slippery and you reach the entrance to the via ferrata over crumbly scree. After a short rest, you return along the same route.

If you also want to climb the Große Cirspitze, turn left at a sign on the road and follow a path to the gorge west of the Große Cirspitze. Continue up via hairpin bends to the entrance to the easy via ferrata. Up there, the climbers have now earned a longer rest. The way back is the same as the ascent.

Equipment

Climbing shoes, helmet, via ferrata harness, wind and rain protection, sunglasses.

Public transport

Trains stop at Klausen railway station, bus connection Klausen-Grödnertal.

Directions

On the Brenner motorway A22, exit Klausen, direction Grödnertal. Pass through the villages of St. Christina and Wolkenstein and continue to the Gröden Pass.

Parking

Parking directly at the Gardena Pass or parking at the valley station of the Dantercepies cable car.

Type of trail

Length 2.6 km
