Catinaccio Mountain Refuges

Hut that proposes this tour:
Stella Alpina Spiz Piaz refuge
List of refuges on the route:
Vajolet refuge
Preuss refuge
Characteristics of the route:

2240 m

Among the beauties of the mountain, there is also the practice of rock climbing. To approach this sport, the natural gyms close to our shelter are certainly helpful.

We find the Gardeccia Gym less than 100 meters from the shelter, on the right of the road leading to the Vajolet hut. A large boulder gives us the chance to test ourselves with 8 routes facing south with difficulty level 6a - 6b - 7 ° - 7b.

After walking for about 30 minutes the off-road that goes along the Gardeccia basin, you arrive at the massif of Porte Neigre and, before the steepness becomes more marked, you leave the road to the right, arriving at the bottom of its two most popular climbings: 'via del rifugio' and 'vuoto d'aria'.

Two short and beautiful routes, with a development of over 100 meters, equipped by two renowned local mountain guides, to make us enjoy an experience in the fascinating setting offered by the enchanting 'Catinaccio'.

Other sport climbs can easily be found, going beyond 50 meters around the Vajolet and Preuss shelters and the stream on the right, to the Vajolet gym.
