Monte Civetta, Alleghe

#2 of 13 in Things to do in Alleghe
Monte Civetta is a prominent and major mountain of the Dolomites, in the Province of Belluno in northern Italy. Its north-west face can be viewed from the Taibon Agordino valley, and is classed as one of the symbols of the Dolomites.The mountain is thought to have been first climbed by Simeone di Silvestro in 1855, which, if true, makes it the first major Dolomite peak to be climbed. The north-western face, with its 1,000-metre-high cliff, was first climbed in 1925 by Emil Solleder and Gustl Lettenbauer. It is historically considered the first "sixth grade" in six-tier scale of alpinistic difficulties proposed by Willo Welzenbach . Thirty years later UIAA used this as a basis for its grading system.

  • Majestic and imposing. A true spectacle of Pezzé days in the company of the OWL.

  • If you are in the area, from any point of the compass you look at it, the monte Civetta always has its charm. In winter the rock outcropping between the snow, expressing all its wrinkled pride, towering over the Valley and the Lake. Gently, the plants and the Alpine sport, to this day, bring an enhancement to the landscape which, hopefully, will always be protected and never destroyed.

  • Monte Civetta has the Majesty that allows him to add to the quality of dolomite also those of the Alpine massif. Pristine, without lifts, is an outstanding reference to protect.
