    Mountaineering in Carnic Alps - Climb up from Passo Pramollo to Creta di Aip

    Creta di Aip (Trogkofel, Veliki Koritnik) is the highest summit of the eastern part of the Carnic Alps Main Ridge. Its north face with its dramatic appearance dominates the alpine meadows around Rudnig Alm.

    The summit itself is broad plateau which vertical drops on all sides. Close to the south face runs Traversata Carnica, Karnischer Höhenweg (403) a multi day 140km trekking trail. The mountain is made of Permian Trogkofel limestone which is singular in the area in which it stands. The mountain was first ascended in 1886 by C. Prochaska and J. Biebl.

    Starting from Italy drive through Pontebba village (545 m) and then turn directly to Passo di Pramollo / Nassfeld Pass (1530 m). From Pontebba to the pass you will need 30 minutes. On the Austrian side, shortly behind the border you will find the ski area called Arena Nassfeld, where you can park your car. From Austria Take B111 through Gailtal until you reach Hermagor.

    Via ferrata Crete Rosse

    The origin of ferrata begins in Traversata Carnica, (Karnischer Höhenweg) on south side of Creta di Aip (path 403). Traversata Canica may be reached from Rudnig Alm over saddle Rudnig Sattel (one houre) or from Passo del Cason di Lanza (1552m). Aproximatly 15 minutes from Rudnig Sattel we can see in the wall inclined wide and expresive couloir. Here you can climb up through short and as well as secured ferrata.

    Monte Cavallo from Creta Di Aip

    Ferrata started up with unexpressive grove. We can easy climb up along fixed ropes and pegs. Little higer the grove widend to deep couloir. It is easy to climb. In the midle of ferrata we turn towards to the edge of couloir. On exposed edge we climb up 30m to the stone shaft where we climb through shaft and stay at little plateau. Here is an box with inscription book. We are allmoast at the top of ferrata, after a short climb up in a good wall we reach grassy slopes of Creta Di Aip. From entrance to exit you can climb 30min – 45 min and 150 m of ferrata. To the summit you need still 45 minutes, so you have time to look arround your self .
