Resort: Campitello di Fassa - Passo Sella
Categories: Nature

Description: Col Rodella has a peculiar "panettone-like" shape that makes this mountain easy to be spotted from any village of the Val di Fassa. Once you reach the top, after an ascent by cable car (from Campitello) that covers a change in altitude of about 1,000 m, the view of the Sassolungo leaves you breathless. The Sassolungo group is formed by a multitude of needle-like spires and pinnacles that reign over the grassland underneath. On the left extremity, in direction of Alpe di Siusi, the group ends with triangular pyramid-shaped Sassopiatto, the escarpment at the margins of this very ancient coral reef. The scenery is great for taking pictures of Torri del Sella, Sass Pordoi and Piz Boè, Gran Vernel, Marmolada, Colac and Crepa Neigra.

Curiosities

Activities and sport in summer/winter

In summer you can hike from Col Rodella down to "Forcella Rodella" and Rifugio Friedrich August, so named after King Frederick August III of Saxonia, who was also an expert mountaineer. A wooden statue outside the refuge portrays him finger-pointing at the Sassolungo. From here starts path no. 557 named Friedrich August Weg in the King’s honour. It’s an easy, panoramic trail that unwinds along hillside fields up to Rifugio Sandro Pertini, in memory of ex-Italian President Sandro Pertini, who loved the Dolomites of Fassa. The itinerary continues up to Rifugio Sassopiatto, from where to eventually descend across the Val Duron. But there are a lot of sports that one can practise besides trekking, such as free-climbing. Via ferrata "Col Rodella" winds up among steps, cracks, chimneys and pretty difficult crossings, along the southern calcareous face, which is quite harsh and challenging. A lot of paragliding and hang-glidingfans lunch from the mountainsides of Col Rodella, as it is commonly reputed to be one of the best places for flying sports, thanks to its microclimate that originates from high pressure.

In winter Col Rodella is a famous ski resort, thanks to its direct links to the Sellaronda ski tour (Dolomiti Superski carousel) and to the nearby ski area Belvedere-Canazei.
