La Marmolada

Marmolada is the highest mountain in the Dolomites at 3,343 meters. I found a route that would take me on a 85km circuit around Marmolada by crossing Passo San Pellegrino and Passo Fedaia. 

Fedaia was an awesome climb. I didn't realize it, but there is a fairly large lake (and dam) at the top of the pass (altitude: 2,057 meters). Marmolada's peak towers another 1,300 meters above Fedaia.

Below are some pictures. If you are looking for my Garmin data file, it somehow got corrupted. I am hoping Garmin can fix the file so I can upload it.

  1. The landscape is unbelievably beautiful. Does the high snow ever melt? Did you stop for Pellegrino bottled water and an orange
    marmolada sandwich?
