Description

The Sassolungo is the main summit of the Sassolungo group in the Dolomites of Val Gardena and a well-known climbing mountain. The name "Langkofel" Ladin "Saslonch", Italian "Sassolungo", respectively meaning "long stone / rock".

The Sassolungo (3181 m) extends over one kilometer in NW-SE direction. Together with with his so called "Langkofeleck" east summit it builds in terms of area the half of the group. The normal route leads through the southwest wall to the Gipfelverbindungsgrat (II) and from there to the summit (III) and is extremely long. The first ascent was made on August 13, in 1869 by Paul Grohmann (1838-1908). On the Sassolungo is a bivouac as an emergency shelter.

In a natural niche on the east side of the Sassolungo a about 3 meters high carved wooden Madonna is installed. It was set up by the sculptor Flavio Pancheri itself and the Catores (Alpine School and Mountain Guides Val Gardena) in the 1950s. The 'Rampenführe' climbs above this Madonna.
