The edge of the Velo alla Cima della Madonna on the Pale di San Martino
is a classic climb to be included among the most popular destinations of a mountaineer.
The first ascent was made on 19 July 1920 by Gunther Langes and Erwin Merlet.
The variant was then completed in 1921 by the Mountain Guides Carlo and Michele Zagonel.
This variant, which is very popular and is also called Steger, after the name of the illustrious repeater, straightens out
the original route staying a close distance from the edge, with difficulties around the V° - V°+,
on good rock.
Difficulty: IV°+ V° V°+
Altitude difference: 380 m
Period: June - September
We recommend you to stay overnight at the Rifugio del Velo.
