Attraverso il Pesce Climbing Route in Marmolada d'Ombretta

The Attraverso il Pesce climbing route (Weg Durch den Fisch - the Fish Route), gained a legendary reputation. It is one of the Dolomite mountaineering masterpieces and one of its most classic climbs. This marvelous and very demanding climbing route got its name from a characteristic recess, right in the middle of the slab, whose shape reminds that of a whale.
