In Pò Crepa

This small crag is highly recommended for beginners. Thanks to the simple pitches with close pegging it is ideal for first climbing experiences.

The approach is short. Given the north-west exposure, this wall is perfect in hot weather.

Nearby you can visit the Pocol War Cemetery and Shrine: the "Sacrario Militare di Pocol" war memorial is visible from the centre of Cortina d'Ampezzo below. It stands like a medieval fortress amidst green woods on the top of the hill of Cortina's district of Pocol, overlooking Cortina on the west side. It contains  the remains of the soldiers who fought and died during the WW1 in the areas of Som Pouses, Cristallo, 5 Torri, Lagazuoi,  and Castelletto.
