The Sella Towers offer climbing for everyone. With short approaches, climbing in the sun or in the shade. They offers climbing routes in all difficulties.
There are five distinctly separate Sella Towers: the First, Second, Third, Fifth, and Fourth Sella Towers.
The Fifth Tower is quite small and set back to the east between the Third and Fourth Towers. Most climbing interest is in the First, Second, and Third Towers with only four routes on the Fourth Tower and only one route on the Fifth Tower.
Here are listed the classic and recommended routes on the Tower (arranged by difficulty):
Normal Route, mostly I with places of II, 150 m, about one hour from the base. This is also the normal descent route. It attains the notch between the Tower and Piz Ciavazes via the south side, then follows steep broken ledges up the east side to the summit.
Kostner Route, Southeast Face, III+, 180 m, This route has a spectacular open chimney near the top which separates the top of the south pillar from the face – see photos below.
Glück Route (Pilastrini), South Pillar, IV+, 140 m
Steger Route, West Ridge, V-, 180 m, (polished at the crux)
Trenker Route South Face, V+ or V / A0, 180 m, (polished at the crux) There is a grading difference between my guidebook and the link provided, probably due to the polishing. This link also has excellent photos.
Tissi Route, West Ridge, VI or VI- / A1, 180 m
Schober Route, South Face, VII- or VI- / A1, 180 m
