Crepe de Oucera Basse

Given the number of pitches – more than 80, all single-pitch – this crag is ideal for families. It was realised by Diego Ghedina Tomasch, member of Cortina's legendary group of climbers "Scoiattoli".

Thanks to his foresight and perseverance, today enthusiasts from all over the world can climb in a very beautiful and cool forest in the hottest summer months.

The rock is dolomite reef with holes, generally very eroded by water.

The bolts are mainly placed very close together and therefore the crag is suitable for beginners and untrained climbers.
The climbing garden can be reached from Pocol via the Giau-Pass road SP638. After 2.9 km, the street widens offering space for parking.

Here you take the hiking trail in the direction of Tofana di Rozes and will reach the foot of the climbing garden after approx. 400 m.
