Croda da Lago

This crag is located at the foot of the homonymous rock group and is ideal for technical, never banal climbing.

It has been almost completely bolted by Carlo Alverà, mountain guide from Cortina and member of the most famous group of climbers in Italy "Scoiattoli" (squirrels).

Due to its proximity to the mountain hut Rifugio Croda da Lago, which can be reached on foot or by off-road vehicle, and to the magical Lake Fedéra, this crag is the ideal place to spend a day with the family.

After strenuous climbing on the hottest days, the brave can swim in the cold water of this lake.

A tip: enjoy unforgettable moments of relaxation right on the lakeside in the environmentally friendly sauna barrel.
