Punta Grohmann peak

Together with the Punta delle Cinque Dita and the Langkofeleck, the Punta Grohmann forms a characteristic profile of the Val Gardena Dolomites

Sas da duman the Punta Grohmann peak is called in Ladin. The mountain is 3,114 m high and only a bit lower than the Sassolungo, the highest mountain of the Sassolungo Group. Seen from the Passo Sella, the Punta Grohmann together with the 3,081 m high Langkofeleck and the 2,918 m high Punta delle Cinque Dita (Fünffingerspitze) forms a characteristic profile.

In 1875 the mountain was named after the Austrian alpinist Paul Grohmann (1838-1908) and five years later climbed for the first time. Michael Innerkofler, a South Tyrolean farmer and mountain guide of the 19th century conquered the mountain across the west wall single-handedly. 8 years later he lost his life on the Monte Cristallo.

Today the Punta Grohmann is a famous climbing peak in the Dolomites, the route across the south wall is the most popular one (“Dimai” Führe): it starts at the Passo Sella Mountain Hut and proceeds across a saddle and a scree slope to the entrance of the via ferrata (difficulty level IV, approx. 4 hours walking time).
