  A magnificent slab of rock
by iandsmith

This slab of rock, known as Sass Pordoi, is simply awesome. Situated in Val di Fassa, Hollywood has noticed it and has been here. In places the cliff is a sheer 864 metres. When you stand within 100 metres of it, as I have after skiing off the top, I can tell you it is overpowering. There a long piece of rope rocking in the breeze where someone has ascended. It's amazing to contemplate that anyone would even think about trying. This is definitely one for the experienced climber only.
