The South Tyrolean mountaineer, Reinhold Messner - an international icon of alpinism, has made some of his historic climbs in the Dolomites. These include the ascent to Sas dla Crusc (The Sasso di Santa Croce) in Alta Badia, on which several climbing routes are open today.

Sas dla Crusc - Via Messner al Grande Muro

This incredible Dolomites route has been made famous by the first person to climb it, Reinhold Messner. The Sas dla Crusc is a huge rampart-shaped mountain that rises up vertically behind the Santa Croce refuge above a base of inclined rocks. Be ready to get awe-inspired!

Via Messner technical data: Difficulty first section IV and V, second section between VI and VII-; elevation gain 300 metres, time required approx. 5 hours.
You arrive at the start from the Santa Croce refuge (which can be reached by chair lift) climbing up the base to underneath the rock face (difficulty II and III, approx. 1 hour).
You descend along the South ridge and follow the equipped trail that takes you back to the refuge (approx. 1.30 hours).
