The Mont Ross wall is made up of a sedimentary rock called dolostone and is typical of the most famous walls in the Dolomites. The climb is almost always on a vertical or slightly steep wall, especially challenging for average climbers.
Description of the route
The Mont Ross wall was created thanks Abele Blanc, a local alpine guide who, with a group of friends who called themselves Croé Bocia, cleaned and bolted all the wall routes in a single season. The rock type is totally different from all the other walls in the Valle d’Aosta since it is dolostone, softer than granite making the climb enjoyable due to the holds and amount of various holds.
The activity requires technical experience. Alpine guide assistance is recommended.
Minimum, maximum and average route difficulty from 5b to 7c, average 6b+.
