Piz Boè

The only three thousander of the Sella Group is the Piz Boè, also called Boespitze in German.

The Piz Boè is well-known far beyond the borders. It is considered the easiest three thousander of the Dolomites and can be climbed in approx. 1 hour. The mountain is also famous for the gorgeous view from the top. The hike starts at the mountain station of the Sass Pordoi Cable Car, the valley station is located at the Passo Pordoi ridge. In 1864 it was climbed for the first time but already a long time before hunters were on their way here.

There are also other routes to climb the peak of the Piz Boè. The Cesare Piazzetta Via Ferrata, constructed in 1982, is among the most difficult via ferrata routes and offers a vertical cliff and a chain bridge. Moreover the peak can be reached from the Passo Gardena via the Franz-Kostner Mountain Hut and along other via ferrata routes.

By the way: on the 3,152 m high peak of the Piz Boè, which is located at the border of the Provinces of Bolzano and Trento and the Province of Belluno, a mountain hut is located, the Rif. Capanna Piz Fassa. It is one of the highest located mountain huts of the Dolomites and offers also overnight accommodation (opened in summer).
