Ascent to Sass Rigais (Dolomites)


Hiking tour from Zans (Rifugio Zannes, 1680 meters AMSL) to Sass Rigais (3025 meters AMSL) via Mittagsscharte (2597 meters AMSL), located in the Dolomites in South Tyrol.




This tour is difficult and dangerous in sections (one instance see video below), so climbing experience is mandatory.

Though you can do without it (and I’d seen quite a few people going without it), I would recommend wearing a helmet and a via ferrata set/harness from the Mittagsscharte on.

The red dot painted on the rock (hopefully recognizable) marks the beginning of a via ferrata section.
